THE ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL Centre for Digital Health on the Moray College UHI campus is to welcome a new Tenant.
Alceli Ltd have Scottish Government funding initially for one year to develop a prototype in the development of proton therapy treatment for the radiological treatment of cancer.
The company, started by Director Steve Hunt – who has a background in Engineering and has worked in many countries including Switzerland and Thailand, moved into the Centre in Elgin in early August.
They have ambitions to not only design and test a new prototype but also enter the field of manufacture. The current staff team in Elgin consists of seven employees and one executive Director including one young apprentice.
Their plan is to employ a number of young people as apprentices and the company are committed to investing in young people as they grow. Their aim is to build the staff team up to 50.
After looking at several locations, Alceli chose the Alexander Graham Bell Centre as the base for their ground-breaking work because of its location and links with NHS Grampian and the University of the Highlands and Islands, Moray College.
Steve Hunt said: “The centre here in Elgin is perfect for our research. The location is ideal for us and our stakeholders and being able to link with the work of the University and NHS Grampian is a real advantage for us.
“The facilities here in the centre are perfect for our work and I would encourage other companies to consider the Alexander Graham Bell Centre when looking for accommodation.”
Jacqui Taylor, Head of Marketing and External Relations said: “We are delighted to welcome Alceli to the Alexander Graham Bell Centre for Digital Health.
“The work of the company is a perfect fit for the ethos of the centre and our stakeholders and reflects Morays strength as an area to develop, pilot and test comprehensive digital healthcare models.”
