Electronics firm Sony is enjoying a rise in demand across all aspects of its business and will create several permanent manufacturing jobs to support this increased interest, reports itv.com.

The 26 positions will be created at the Sony UK Technology Centre (UKTEC) in Pencoed, Bridgend.

 

 


Workers will be expected to be involved in all of the stages of manufacturing, including packaging and logistics, reports walesonline.co.uk. One fifth of the new employees will find themselves working in Sony's Customer Service Centre, ahead of the launch of its new line of smartphones.

UKTEC mostly focuses on the manufacturing of professional cameras, but there are also a number of third-party collaborative projects going on at the centre. For example, Raspberry Pi projects and medical devices are also developed at UKTEC.

Steve Dalton, managing director of Sony UKTEC, says Sony's recent success means its able to create new roles for skilled manufacturers.

"For us, quality doesn't just mean the quality of products," he states. "It also means delivering quality customer service. We have built a reputation as a manufacturing centre of excellence, so it is important that our drive to deliver quality is echoed through everything we do, including our customer service offering."

He adds that Sony will ensure that its employees continue to learn valuable skills as technology moves on and advances.
