An engineering firm is to create up to 100 jobs at its Devon plant after winning a contract to supply parts for a range of executive jets.

Centrax will create the jobs at its Newton Abbot plant in its turbine components division.

Peter Hockton, Centrax’s personnel director, said the company may have to recruit from the Midlands. It has taken on 100 workers in the past year and is close to exhausting the local supply.

‘Vacancies will exist for professional engineers, toolmakers, skilled machinists, CNC operators, quality assurance inspectors, maintenance fitters, electricians and service engineers,’ said Hockton.
