Newgate Clocks brings part of its manufacturing back from China

A clock company has restarted production at its Shropshire factory after an eight-year gap.

Newgate Clocks Ltd in Oswestry subcontracted its manufacturing to China eight years ago for "economic reasons".

The company said bringing manufacture back to the UK gave it more control over quality and speed of production.

A spokesman said the company, which employs 35 people, will be taking on around six extra staff.
