ID Quantique’s Bristol office expands
World-leader in quantum-safe crypto solutions, ID Quantique’s Bristol office is set to go one step further.
Since being founded in 2001 in Geneva, Switzerland, IDQ has been an innovator in quantum technology and prevalent voice in the industry, particularly focusing on quantum-safe security solutions, single-photon systems and quantum random number generators.
The last three years have seen the company grow very quickly – with sales revenue tripling, the workforce doubling and the creation of a Joint Venture in China. Needless to say it’s been an exciting journey so far and we are pleased to announce that it’s set to continue with our new office in Bristol, UK.
Home to over 35,000 digital jobs and with a blend of seasoned businesses and innovative startups, Bristol has been a focal point for the technology industry for many years. It’s also home to the University of Bristol, an organisation we have worked closely with in development of LIDAR.
Opened last year, the site is located in St. Philips, just outside of Bristol City Centre. There, we will continue our work as part of the UK Quantum Communications Hub partnership – focusing on the development of quantum communications for real world applications.
