Leicester-based BPC Electronics has secured R&D and manufacturing business valued at £2m over the next 12 months.
The company, which specialises in aircraft hardware, entertainment systems and software technologies, is based on Gorse Hill Industrial Estate in Beaumont Leys, Leicester, and employs 44 people.
Recent projects have included a state-of-the-art digital download jukebox and an offshore helipad lighting system for oil rigs. Other Group activities include the manufacture and design of dust extraction systems, digital entertainment systems and sound systems.
Group operations director Scott Williams says the increasingly competitive nature of the PCB market and lighting sectors has seen the company focus on specialist areas over the last 12 months, namely R&D and product development and sound and lighting systems.
He said: “As manufacturers in specialist industrial and technology sectors we’ve developed a range of skills that meet the demanding nature of R&D and niche electronics, such as those required in the aircraft industry and entertainments’ software and hardware markets”.
