Abstract

A major restructuring program helped a developer and manufacturer of advanced scientific instrumentation to reduce its huge backlog of work, improve on‐time delivery and regain its place as a world leader in its field. Central to the restructuring at the UK’s 420‐employee Oxford Instruments Superconductivity (OIS), which specializes in designing and manufacturing superconducting magnets and cryogenic systems, was the recruitment of 85 new technical staff.
