In order to develop and focus its business and as an investment for the future TRL Technology Ltd., the wholly-owned subsidiary of TRL Electronics plc, has reorganised its operations and opened a new high technology manufacturing facility. The company, which produces innovative leading edge radio and satellite communications systems, is now organised into three principal business divisions — Surveillance Systems (formerly the Government Communications and the Defence Systems divisions), Defence Electronics (previously the Technology & Innovation division), and Electronic Security, complemented by Operations, Customer Support and Quality Assurance.

The new purpose-equipped 20,000 ft2 manufacturing facility, which also houses the company’s Customer Support and Quality Assurance Centre, is part of an investment programme of more than £1.8 M. It is the latest addition to a number of secure sites that the company operates near Tewkesbury, UK.

Martin Somers, the company’s director of manufacturing, commented, “This new facility represents an extremely important step for TRL Technology. It provides us with a high tech medium volume production capability to support the state of the art designs being developed by our specialist business divisions. These cover a wide range of advanced defence electronics, satellite monitoring and commercial solutions, as well as manufacture for a number of ongoing contracts with the UK MoD, the US DoD and other government agencies around the world.”
