Employment expansion

Strong growth in domestic and overseas orders has led to an expansion in employment at UK electronics company TMD Technologies.

With almost 40 new jobs created in the last two months, the workforce now stands at just under 190.

The West London business develops and manufactures radar transmitters, microwave amplifiers, microwave tubes and high-voltage power supplies.

In the second half of 2008, the company commissioned a new production area for electronics assembly, high-voltage testing and environmental stress screening.

This included a 40,000 litre liquid nitrogen tank to cool the stress chambers.

TMD Technologies was formed in a management buy-out from THORN-EMI in 1995.

Its products are used in civil and military radar systems, plus satellite communications, electromagnetic compatibility testing and science laboratories.
