    NETPark’s Kromek secures $17 million agreement

    A technology firm known for helping thwart terror plots has secured a contract worth more than $17 million.

    Sedgefield’s Kromek Group is supplying detection equipment to a US-based international operator.

    It says the seven-year deal follows progression of a development programme announced late last year, which saw NETPark-based Kromek provide a cadmium zinc telluride-based (CZT) detector solution that helped its client identify contaminants during production processes.

    The firm says CZT detectors enable higher quality of imaging with the ability for more accurate and reliable identification of materials.
