Swansea is to benefit from the creation of 60 new jobs, thanks to Trojan Electronics.
Executive employment consultancy UK Knack Group has announced the move by the respected repairer of electronic products after Trojan’s managing director Clive Murphy confirmed his company’s lease on a new 33,381 square feet site in the Welsh town.
Murphy said the e-tail (on-line retail) sales and distribution centre at Swansea Vale will provide badly needed working space for what is a burgeoning division of the company’s operations.
UK Knack Group’s managing director said that as Trojan’s core business is the repair, refurbishment and recycling of every-day personal electronics, it is servicing some of the world’s largest manufacturers and retailers. “Considering that we are talking the IT industry in the broader sense, and the sheer size and speed of IT expansion, this Trojan development augurs well for employment,” he said. “These 60-odd jobs will come over the next 18 months, and prospects can only look up.”
Anything Trojan collects that it can’t repair or recondition, it recycles through its approved and authorised centre.
UK Knack Group’s managing director added that Trojan is a marvellous local success story, now employing a staff of more than 100 in a 24-hour operation that processes about 80,000 items a month after only eight years in business. “There’s more excitement in the offing, with Trojan’s proposed e-tail service extension to the Far East.”
The Swansea Vale industrial estate has been a joint venture between the Assembly Government and the Swansea City Council.
