Cryogenic connector sales growth prompts move
UK based specialist manufacturer of RF and cryogenic connectors and cable assemblies, Intelliconnect, is relocating both its sales and engineering and production facilities to larger premises after a year of exceptional sales growth.
“Our UK sales have doubled in the past twelve months to over £3M and we have seen more than ten percent growth in the USA over the same period,” commented Roy Phillips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect. “We have invested in new product development and test equipment and the launch of our cryogenic cable assembly range has been very successful.”
The design and sales office is moving to larger premises in Chelmsford while the Corby based manufacturing facility is relocating to the Corby Innovation Hub which provides flexible Industrial space for growing companies.
Phillips continued: “Our new production facility will be fifty percent larger than our existing space and we are recruiting at all levels, including looking for apprentices. Chelmsford is a good central location for our engineering and commercial centre and has a pool of skilled engineers for us to draw from as we continue to grow. We are also recruiting in the USA to service rapid developments in medical and supercomputing markets.”
As well as hosting sales and admin functions the new Chelmsford offices will provide a larger engineering design centre for new and custom product developments and maintain the high levels of customer support Intelliconnect are renowned for.
