Electronics firm Trojan creating 60 jobs in Swansea

A Swansea based electronics company is creating up to 60 jobs by opening a new online sales and distribution centre.

Trojan Electronics will lease a premises at the Swansea Vale Central Business Park near the M4.

The company, which specialises in the repair, refurbishment and recycling of consumer electronics products, is based in Gorseinon.

Since the business started eight years ago it has grown to employ over 100 people.

It is moving in to the Olympus B building at Swansea Vale developed by the Welsh Industrial Partnership, a joint venture between Royal Bank of Scotland and the Welsh Assembly Government.

Managing Director Clive Murphy said the availability of the building meant Trojan was able to meet growing demand.

"We provide an e-tail service for businesses which is proving to be particularly popular," he said.

"It provides them with a route to reach mass markets and we are currently in discussions about offering this service to a number of companies in the Far East."

Economy and Transport Minister, Ieuan Wyn Jones, said the Welsh Industrial Partnership was established to provide high quality industrial buildings to support the growth of local businesses.

"It is good news to hear of a local business expanding with the potential to create a significant number of new jobs."
