Active Silicon expands in the UK

POSTED 04/25/2019

Active Silicon has announced the opening of its new production and operations facility in Langley, UK, following weeks of fit-out and preparation.

The new premises are ideally located close to major motorway networks, within sight of the mainline train to London and less than ten miles from Heathrow airport. Staff have been moving into the state-of-the-art facility as the company has re-located its assembly, testing, inspection and supply chain functions to the new site. All R&D, design, support and Head Office responsibilities will remain at the flagship office in Iver, just a couple of miles up the road.

The move gives Active Silicon more space to increase product throughput and recruit more staff at both company locations. The company has made several new appointments over the past two months, including an FPGA Engineer, Stores Controller, Test Technician and HR Manager. Additionally, there is ongoing recruitment for a number of roles which can be viewed online, including Software and Hardware Engineers and a Business Development Manager. Demand for Active Silicon’s frame grabbers, camera interface boards and embedded systems has grown year-on-year. Colin Pearce, CEO, confirmed that “the additional capacity at this new facility will allow us to meet increasing demand for our products.  We’ve seen double digit growth in sales during the last 12 months and expect that to continue throughout 2019.  The opening of Waterside Court allows us grow our workforce and increase our product supply capacity.”
