The firm, which manufactures cutting edge technology including connectivity solutions, power supplies, human machine interface products and electronic assemblies and its plant in Brenda Road, has been taken over by TT Electronics plc.

News of the takeover bid first emerged in February, with company bosses saying they did not expect to see any job losses at the firm’s UK operation, but a small headcount loss was possible with a reduction of staff in the US.

Stadium Group has previously described the Hartlepool plant as being integral to the overall success of the company.
