Birmingham electronics engineering company restructures on the back of exceptional growthMember News
Sorion Electronics Limited is set to restructure its electronics
development and design function currently operated through its sister company
Sorion Developments Limited.
Sorion Electronics specialise in the design and manufacture of some of the most advanced electrical test and assembly process control solutions. Their bespoke solutions allow automotive and manufacturing companies to maximise their operational efficiency and be highly responsive to changing circumstances.
Sorion Developments is an electronics design consultancy specialising in electronics product design and development, printed circuit board design and embedded firmware design and coding.
Whilst the two companies operate independently and are both commercial entities, Sorion Electronics contracts a proportion of its electronics design elements of their electrical test and assembly process control projects to Sorion Developments.
Over the past five years, Sorion Electronics has undergone a period of extensive development and growth. Turnover has increased year-on-year over that past five years which has led the company to invest in and increase the size of their production facilities and offices.
The restructuring will provide quantifiable synergies for both companies, and for Sorion Developments the move will mean their operations will be able to grow quicker through capitalising on greater in-house resource and enhanced software support.
Steve Hayes, Commercial Director at Sorion Electronics commented: The increasing demand for Sorion Electronics has led to an increase in reliance on Sorion Developments. Moving the Sorion Developments function to be an internal operation within Sorion Electronics at the same location will mean there will be greater integration which in turn will lead to efficiencies, greater economies of scale and improved quality and lead times for all of our customers.
Paul Maisey, the Technical Director at Sorion Developments will head the electronics design and development operation at Sorion Electronics whilst also becoming a shareholder. Paul commented: This is a fantastic move which provides the perfect opportunity for both companies to capitalise on each others strengths which will allow for greater growth and increased operational efficiencies.
Sorion Electronics has an excellent growth projection and I am looking forward to developing the electronics design function and being part of the companys future success.
Sorion Electronics was founded in 1990 and employs 45 people at its premises in Ladywood, Birmingham.
