Pektron invest in the future
Following a sustained period of growth, Pektron are proud to announce further significant investment of over one and a half million pounds at their UK Centre of Excellence in Derby, United Kingdom.
In spite of the on-going challenges faced by global economies, Pektron remain committed to strong growth by bringing cutting-edge, technical projects to market, working in close partnership with their customers.
Over three quarters of a million pounds has already been invested during 2012 on state-of-the-art surface mount manufacturing technology to further enhance quality, reliability and deliver innovation for which the Pektron name has become synonymous for nearly 50 years.
As part of the overall investments for 2012, a significant amount has been committed to the implementation of a new Microsoft Dynamics AX Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) cross-business solution. Due to go-live during 2012, this will revolutionise the way Pektron can engage with customers and provide a platform to support future growth strategies.
In addition, a large sum has been spent on ground-breaking test equipment giving Pektron one of the most extensive validation and test facilities in the country. This empowers Pektron’s Development Engineers to ensure that customer components and systems undergo the most rigorous of tests.
Due to Pektron’s growth, an overall increase in head-count of around 10% has taken place during the last 12 months. New opportunities have been created across the business, with high calibre staff joining the Engineering, Manufacturing, Customer Services, Purchasing and Sales teams to support existing clients and help create the next generation of products.
These latest investments underpin a rolling commitment by the Board of Directors to ensure that Pektron remain at the forefront of world-class electronics manufacture and to provide customers with products of the very highest quality.
