Takeover adds spark to jobs picture.

COVENTRY electrical engineering firm Lee Beesley is powering up its business with the takeover of a company in the North- west.

The firm, which is based in Ironmonger Row, city centre, has bought industrial control systems specialists Cheshire Systems, based in Widnes.

It is set to broaden the service to customers and maximise business potential in the north of England.

Lee Beesley's customers include automotive firms, food factories and the petrochemicals' business - many of which have either links or bases in the North-west.

Cheshire specialises in the design and development of conveyor belt systems for car firms including Ford.

It will continue trading under its own name and is now aiming to recruit more staff over the coming months to boost its workforce of 23.

Lee Beesley regional manager Andy Devlin said: ''This takeover will allow Cheshire Systems to offer customers the complete package, including industrial control systems, data communications networks and tradition- al electrical installations.

''We will be looking to build on the excellent reputation Cheshire Systems already has in the industry and develop new business opportunities within the North-west.''
