Phoenix, LLC, known for making the strongest compact neutron generators in the world, announced plans to build a state-of-the-art neutron imaging center in Fitchburg, WI opening in mid 2019. This will be the first non-reactor facility offering commercial neutron imaging services.
“Opening the Phoenix Neutron Imaging Center represents a major advance in making our neutron imaging technology broadly available to any industry,” says Evan Sengbusch, Phoenix President. “By investing in a high performance, reliable, and safe imaging services facility, we’re able to tap into new markets that, due to cost, were previously inaccessible.”
The Madison-based technology company partnered with Krupp General Contractors, known for sustainable building practices, and the city of Fitchburg to build the 10,000 square foot neutron imaging services facility that will provide neutron activation analysis, radiation effects testing and neutron (“n-ray”) and even standard x-ray imaging. The selection process for the new site was done in coordination with local government and economic partner, Madison Region Economic Partnership. “Phoenix’s commitment to continue to grow their business in Fitchburg represents another step forward for the Madison Region as a midwestern biotech hub,” said MadREP President Paul Jadin. “MadREP is proud to have been a part of the collaboration between local government and business on the site selection.” Read the full story here.
