Sony UK Technology Centre in jobs boost

3/03/2014 by


World leading manufacturer of professional and broadcast camera systems Sony UK Technology Centre (UKTC) is creating 26 new jobs.

The positions at the Pencoed operation are being created to support  an increase in demand across all areas of the business. This includes its core manufacturing business of professional and broadcast cameras and camera systems, which saw six additional products introduced to the site’s production line last September.

The new roles will be responsible for all aspects of the manufacturing process from logistics to product assembly, product testing and packing.

The jobs will be distributed between Sony UKTEC’s third-party collaborative manufacturing business projects. Employees will work on production lines for products such as advanced LED technology, medical devices as well as credit-card sized mini computer the Raspberry Pi.

Steve Dalton, managing director of Sony UKTEC, said: “We’ve had a successful few years, which has seen us expand our Sony product portfolio as well as win significant manufacturing deals of non-Sony products.

“This diversification has been our key to survival.  It has lead to our success and enabled us to create additional job opportunities in Wales.

A fifth of the roles will be created for the site’s Customer Service Centre as it introduces Sony’s next generation products – the Xperia Z Range, which includes the latest in 4G technology to its offering.

The range was launched last year and has seven products including Sony’s latest high-definition smartphones and tablets.

Sony UKTEC will be investing £120,000 to develop the customer service centre to include additional work stations, new equipment to support the 4G technologies built into the Xperia Z Range products as well as extra training for existing and new staff.

With a vast number of companies moving some, if not all, of their operations to the cloud, security continues to be of major concern.
