Midlands electronics firm celebrates multinational workforce growth
Stratford-upon-Avon based electrical engineering firm Assembled Electronics Solutions Ltd (AES) has expanded its design team with a number of multinational Design Engineers. Following the opening of its dedicated Design Centre earlier this year, the company had to take on additional staff to meet demand for its new side of the business.
With all new recruits educated to MSc level and having a background in design, Afonso Marques, Sushant Mainali, Krishna Ambati, Brent Hodgson and Kay Roden will be responsible for electronic circuit design, embedded software, FPGA, RF, power supplies, graphical user interfaces and graphics software. Plus, they are set to aid the firm in further breaking into international markets thanks to their multilingual and multicultural backgrounds.
Already working with a number of US and European clients, AES is particularly aiming to attract more interest from forward thinking, corporate clients. With accelerating growth since the company’s establishment in 2009, this year has proven particularly successful for the firm so far thanks to increasing turnovers by 25% year on year and by 47% in the first quarter of 2013 compared with the same period in 2012.
According to the company’s Managing Director, Nigel Maris, “We’ve had an extraordinary start to the year which has enabled us to go ahead with expanding our design department and hiring new staff as well as contracting external design consultants who can provide mechanical, CAD, electronics and software expertise. Thanks to this accumulated knowledge and their wide range of skill sets, we will be able to seek new development projects across our spectrum of market sectors.”
Working with clients within aerospace, automotive, medical, defence and security, OEM, industrial and process control, among others, AES is currently working on telematics, military vehicle climate controls and done camera controls, industrial safety systems for mechanical handling and medical-surgical equipment. Especially their innovative and unique approach to aerospace simulations which are carried out in conjunction with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry has recently earned the company positive feedback and an enviable reputation.
