Assisting engineering performance

Wales-based Technium Performance Engineering is to add on-site workshop units at its Llanelli Gate facility, enabling technology businesses to undertake crucial product development and test work alongside existing office operations.

Six units, offering 100m2 of manufacturing or engineering space, are currently under construction on the 18-acre site. The aim of the development is to support businesses in the performance-engineering sector.

Technium Performance Engineering is part of the Wales-wide network of innovative and specialist centres mainly for the automotive, motorsport, aerospace and marine sectors.

The product development and test facilities offer three-phase electricity, compressed air, and roller-shutter door access to each unit as well as a showcase facility where products may be demonstrated.

The new product development and test facilities are due to be completed by late summer 2008 and expressions of interest are already being received.
