Data acquisition is on fire at Adept

Continuing its growth, Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) has taken on two new members of staff to support its expanding range of data acquisition products (DAQ).

Born in the Netherlands and raised in Portugal, Henrique da Silva will concentrate on DAQ sales and has a Masters in Electronics & Computer Engineering; knowledge he has been passing on by teaching students.  Along with his brother he founded a Portuguese company in 2001 dedicated to hardware/software development.  Having sold the company Henrique has swapped the warmth of Portugal for the cooler climes of North London.

Elizabeth Northrop (Lilly) will be concentrating on technical support and has an MEng in Systems Engineering from Loughborough University.  Her work placement while doing her Masters was as an Applications Engineer at National Instruments where she provided technical support and taught some of their two and three day courses.  In her spare time Lilly practices the martial arts Tai Chi & Wing Tsun and, as if that’s not enough, she has also acquired some circus skills including “fire arts”. 

Mike Pisapia, Managing Director, said, “We are always looking for new staff that can compliment our portfolio of products and really bring something to the team.  With Henrique’s hands-on experience of running his own successful company he is ideally placed to grow our DAQ sales.  Lilly brings a huge amount of knowledge and teaching experience to our team and we are particularly looking forward to her fire-eating act at our Christmas party.

“We are always interested to hear from dynamic, enthusiastic people who can contribute to our success and we are small enough for them to really make a difference and big enough to offer a great working environment where you can grow with us and have fun doing it!”

What do our Customers say about us?

This level of customer support will increase my likelihood to stay with Endnote and recommend it to colleagues. Actually outstanding on comparison to other site.


I have greatly appreciated your help, your restraint in response to some daft questions and your sheer professionalism.

PL, Tunbridge Wells, UK

Very helpful in providing advice on which courses were applicable. Very clear. Checked with trainees to ensure the pace was accurate. Very aware of individual needs of trainees without letting individual issues take over. My interaction with Adept has always been very good. Staff are helpful, efficient and responsive.
