A world class centre for engineering and manufacturing is to be built in Northumberland by a growing electronics company, creating a raft of new jobs.
TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics, has announced plans to plough £3m into its Bedlington base, to transform it into a centre of excellence for the growing business.
The Bedlington facility is home to the design and manufacture of TT Electronics’ products used by customers in the aerospace market, including global aircraft engine manufacturers, such as hybrid circuits.
Now the growing firm wants to create the centre of excellence to support its anticipated growth plans, working in partnership with customers to deliver smarter solutions.
TT Electronics’ investment pledge comes two years after spending £1m on creating a clean room and automated production line, a spend which is already supporting production for aircraft engine makers while helping to win new customers.
The ambitious new plans will trigger the demolition of some buildings and redevelopment of others, creating improved space for efficient engineering and manufacturing operations. The site currently employs around 310 people in Bedlington, up more than 25% since 2015, and headcount is expected to continue to increase in the next few years to support the anticipated growth for TT Electronics in the North East.
