1 min read

UK specialist connector maker Intelliconnect (Europe) has moved to a larger facility at the Corby Innovation Hub following 30% sales growth in 2020.

Commenting Roy Phillips, Managing Director of Intelliconnect, said, “After a year of exceptional sales growth, we have relocated our sales, engineering and production facilities to larger premises and will be recruiting new staff at all levels including offering apprenticeships."

The move to a 6400ft² site provides the space required for their immediate increase in production requirements and provides additional space for future expansion.

According to the company, despite enormous supply chain, delivery and logistics challenges during 2020 it has been able to introduce a number of key new products including high density connector blocks and high specification cable products and capitalised on a number of significant opportunities in cryogenic, defence, medical and marine applications worldwide.

Growth markets include wireless communications, the IoT and Industry 4.0, quantum computing and research.

2020 saw Intelliconnect make a number of strategic investments with the appointment of a Global Sales and Marketing Director to oversee sales and marketing across all of Intelliconnect’s markets with their business partners around the world. A UK Sales Manager was also appointed to lead management and business development of sales for the UK and Ireland with special emphasis on medical, industrial, test and measurement and cryogenic markets.

Continuous improvement in working practices during 2020 has brought accreditation to ISO 14001 and ISO 45001, adding to their existing ISO 9001:2015 quality standard and SC21 silver performance standard for the Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space Industry Supply Chain Programme. Intelliconnect are also members of the Living Wage Foundation.

"We are completely signed up to high quality, responsible and ethical manufacturing practices and to ensuring the best possible conditions in the workplace for all of our Team," said Phillips.
