Living in Derbyshire
Derby was home to the worlds very first factory – The Silk Mill – which empowered the city and was the start of the development of its reputation for manufacturing and innovation. Many engineering brands are located in Derby and the surrounding area including Rolls Royce, Bombardier, Toyota and JCB, and together we all contribute to make Derby an innovative, high tech, manufacturing base.
If you are looking for a rewarding career but love the great outdoors, Pektron could offer the perfect opportunity for you – we like to think of it as Silicon Dale!
Based on the outskirts of Derby (to the north), the Pektron campus provides easy access to the great outdoors. With the Derbyshire Dales and Peak District National Park on our doorstep, many of our staff are keen cyclers, riders and walkers and take full advantage of the beautiful countryside around us.
Conversely for the townies among us, Derby has a fantastic range of restaurants and bars, an active theatre and arts scene with historic buildings and museums which reflect our local industrial heritage.
