We are based in Bristol, a vibrant multicultural city in the South West of England and a regional technological hub.

Bristol has a strong history of engineering. Notably, Bristol is home to the Clifton Suspension Bridge, a feat of engineering designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel which started construction in 1831. Bristol is also home to the SS Great Britain (also designed by Brunel), a former passenger steamship and the largest vessel afloat when launched in 1843.

The first contact mode high-speed atomic force microscope was invented here in Bristol, at the University of Bristol, in 2004. Bristol Nano Dynamics Ltd. is a spin-out of the University of Bristol, where our directors all completed their PhDs!

Our offices and labs are based in South Bristol close to a wide range of independent shops and eateries as well as the renowned Tobacco Factory Theatre.

Bristol was named the best city in Britain in which to live in 2014 and 2017, and won the European Green Capital Award in 2015. We are certainly proud to be Bristol Nano Dynamics.

It’s important to us that we use local businesses to produce our microscopes and other products. We are happy to say that our technology is ‘Made in Bristol’!
