Newbury Electronics has appointed Francesca Stockwell to the new role of Business Development Manager and expanded its offices and assembly facilities.

Francesca has over 10 years' experience in the electronics sector in a variety of sales and business development roles. continues to go from strength to strength with recent investments in both staff and facilities.

"I'm really excited about joining Newbury Electronics. We have extensive design expertise, high quality manufacturing capabilities and excellent engineering support, all housed under one roof and I believe that there a lot of opportunities for us to develop both new and existing business both in the UK and further afield;" said Francesca Stockwell.

In the addition, the company recently completed the expansion and refurbishment of its offices and assembly facilities with the creation of three new mezzanine floor areas. These new offices are occupied by the growing design team from Newbury Innovation, and provide improved office space for the accounts, customer care and quotation teams alongside additional secure storage. The investment has also delivered a new goods lift between the floors and enabled an upgrade of the extraction system to allow for additional assembly machines, which were installed earlier in the year.

John Rowley, Managing Director, Newbury Electronics, said; "We are delighted that Francesca has joined the team and her appointment combined with the recent investments in new equipment and our facilities puts us in a strong position, despite the uncertainties that exist for many manufacturing organisations at the current time."

At the same time, Newbury Innovation has welcomed David Bajics to its engineering & development team. David joined Newbury Electronics in 2016 as a final inspector on the shop floor but earlier this year took on a new role as an electronics design engineer within the Newbury Innovation team. David said; "I have been interested in electronics since I was a child and I've completed a couple of home projects which involved designing circuits, getting them manufactured and then assembling them myself." Commenting on David's new role, Jon Hawkins, Technical Director, said; "David combines an obvious passion for electronics design with a real desire to learn more. He is a real asset to our team and we look forward to supporting his development over the coming months." Mr Bajics is hoping to commence an Open University course later this year to extend his knowledge of the latest approaches in electronics design.
