Factory to create 200 jobs.
UNIVERSAL Engineering has launched a factory at Llantrisant which will employ 200 workers.
Welsh Government Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, Edwina Hart, will today formally open the factory, which will provide work for engineers and fabricators. Universal Engineering specialises in designing, developing and manufacturing close tolerance complex assemblies and equipment for the subsea, oil and gas sectors, defence and aerospace industries.
The multi-million pound investment is backed by PS2m business finance from the Welsh Government to support the creation of the 200 jobs. The 250,000sq ft facility will increase the company's capacity to meet growing global demand for its services.
