PRP Optoelectronics announces the opening of new headquarters in Swindon

Technology company PRP Optoelectronics have announced the opening of their new headquarters in Swindon.

The company specialises in the design and manufacture of high performance products based on light emitting diode (LED) technology. The company has an international reputation for delivering reliable products, together with exemplary customer service.

PRP Optoelectronics are moving to Westerngate Industrial Estate, Hillmead Drive, Swindon and will occupy a 950m2 state of the art facility.

CEO, Robert Green, explains what this means for the future of PRP: “After 25 years in Towcester the proposed demolition of the site by the owners forced us to reconsider the best location for PRP to enable the company to continue to support the growing demand for its products.

Swindon not only has excellent transport links, it also represents strong local hub of technology companies with a good source of local talent and supply chain links.  For our international customers Heathrow airport is just down the road.

We’ve also been impressed with the level of support and enthusiasm demonstrated by both Swindon Council and Forward Swindon.  This is an extremely encouraging start.

This new manufacturing space, combined with our cutting-edge facilities at Rutherford Appleton Laboratories will ensure PRP Optoelectronics remains at the forefront of high performance LED device design, development and manufacture.”

PRP will be holding a special launch event with employees, customers and guests later this month when the new facility will be formally opened by local MP, Solicitor General Robert Buckland QC.
