Elektron expansion 'to create 80 jobs in Torbay'

An engineering company is to invest £2m and create 80 jobs as part of an expansion of its operations in south Devon, a council has said.

Elektron Technology is to expand its operations in Woodland Road, Torquay.

The Cambridge-based company manufactures temperature and pressure measurement software and equipment, as well as precision cutting blades.

Torbay Council said its development agency worked with the firm for several months to secure the investment.

Elektron's building was undergoing a refurbishment to accommodate the expansion, the council said.
