Newcastle’s Zytronic pumps £1m into expanding manufacturing capabilities

Blaydon-based Zytronic has invested £1m into increasing its manufacturing capacity.

A developer and manufacturer of touch sensor solutions, the firm is looking to bolster its ultra-large format equipment for digital signage, table surface and other applications.

With most touch screen manufacture occurring in cleanroom conditions, as apparent at the firm’s Newcastle site, Zytronic is aiming to bolster its facilities.

The firm’s investment will increase total manufacturing floor area to 10,000 square feet, whilst adding five new direct write electrode machines and a further automated laminator.

CEO, Mark Cambridge, said: “In its 2015 financial year, Zytronic grew by 13%. A key feature of this growth has been further market acceptance of our patented multi-touch projected capacitive technology (MPCT™), which enables multi-user and multi touch sensing in ultra large form factor sizes up to 85”.

“During the year, we made a number of investments in our property, plant and machinery to support this growth, increasing our output capacity, especially in large formats, where we saw demand for large touch sensors increase by 50% in volume terms over the prior year.”
