A HARTLEPOOL electronics company has invested in more staff as it plans for further growth.
Two new directors and three commercial staff have joined Stadium Electronics as it revealed plans to expand in areas such as green and renewable energy.
Chief executive Stephen Phipson, who only joined the company himself in September, said: “In order to ensure we have the capability and capacity to fulfil our growth aspirations, we are seriously committed to investing in our people and facilities.
“As we focus on continued organic growth, the sales team appointments will drive new business in both our existing target markets and in emerging sectors such as green energy, renewables and smart metering.”
The new additions include group operations director Charlie Peppiatt and business unit director Ian Davies.
Stadium has also doubled the size of its commercial team overnight by appointing Lindsay Driscoll, Steve Henderson and Sinney Leung.
Stadium, which celebrates its centenary this year, recorded a turnover of £44.8m in 2010 with an operating profit of £3.3m.
The company, which employs 1,200 staff at sites in Hartlepool, Rugby, Diss and China, provides electronic assembly and product manufacture services for clients in sectors including controls for stairlifts, smart water meters and LED-based lighting and signage products.
