Peratech relaunches with component sale model for industrial controls

Newly relaunched UK company Peratech is targeting the industrial control market with its quantum tunnelling composite (QTC) materials.

The relaunched venture showed a demonstrator at the Hannover Messe 2015 event on 13-17 April. This uses Peratech’s QTC opaque material to create a resilient, conformable lighter-touch human machine interface (HMI).


Peratech began in 1996 as a company to commercialise QTC materials. The Richmond, Yorkshire-based had been growing commercially as a materials supplier and technology licensor, and was acknowledged in 2011-12 for its technology development with a clutch of awards.

It later encountered difficulty, however - and, in January 2014 Peratech entered administration after the withdrawal of a major customer led to a cash flow shortfall.

Jon Stark, CEO of the relaunched Peratech, spoke exclusively to +Plastic Electronics about QTC’s potential in a new generation of touch-sensitive controls and the new business model he is leading at Peratech.
