County Durham electrical firm expands workforce following double digit revenue boost
A County Durham electronics firm has expanded its workforce to meet growing demand both in the UK and overseas.
Peterlee-based Seaward has welcomed 17 new hires to its team over the past two months as demand for its products continues to grow.
With an international office in Tampa, Florida, Seaward currently employs around 170 people, manufacturing electronic test and measurement instruments used in a range of electrical, medical, industrial and energy sector applications.
The new jobs follow an increase in sales revenues across all sectors in 2021 - up by 20 per cent compared to previous years - with expected further growth during the rest of the year.
The company has plans in place to continue this double-digit growth in turnover with an ambitious new product development programme and additional expansion of its international capabilities.
CEO Chris Callan commented: “This is an exciting time in Seaward Electronics. We are building on the success of the past and investing to secure the future.
“We have a strategy to grow - and increasing our engineering capability is a key part of this strategy.
“We offer exciting projects and technologies and it has been fantastic to welcome new members of the team to strengthen our ability to introduce new products into our global markets.”
