The Bedlington facility is where the design and production of TT Electronics’ hybrid circuits and specialist current sensing, circuit protection and signal conditioning product lines is done.
The facility is AS9100 certified – the quality standard recognised by the global aerospace market.
TT Electronics is investing circa £3 million to create the facility which follows over a £1 million+ investment to create a Class 6 clean room which opened in 2016, and a multi-chip module automated production line.
This investment is already supporting production for global aircraft engine manufacturers.
The current site is being consolidated; buildings are being demolished and redeveloped and an improved space is being created for efficient engineering and manufacturing operations.
TT Electronics currently employs around 310 people in Bedlington, up more than 25% since 2015. The site runs a successful apprenticeship programme, creating opportunities for the next generation of engineers and developing future leaders in support functions. Headcount is expected to continue to increase in the next few years to support the anticipated growth for TT Electronics in the North East.
TT Electronics expanded its presence in the North East with the acquisition of Stadium Group in April 2018. Stadium’s largest UK facility is in Hartlepool, employing circa 140 employees and supporting customers in industrial and transportation markets, manufacturing electronic assemblies, power supplies and wireless connectivity solutions.
