Businesses in Torbay export across the world
Over the last ten years advanced manufacturing in Torbay has continued to grow and is home to both SME and larger multinational companies. Medical devices, photonics and optics technologies, plastics & composites and smart water saving technology components are all manufactured in Torbay and exported all over the world.
All of these industries need to use innovative technology integrated into their processes to constantly improve their products. This high level of quality is demanded by the end user customers who represent sectors such as aerospace, satellite & space, military & defence and healthcare, all who require the utmost reliability.
State of the art facilities
To support this growth, in more recent years, TDA working on behalf of Torbay Council, has worked with companies in the sector to provide brand new fit for purpose manufacturing and R&D facilities for companies such as Casting Support Group and Nissha Medical Technologies. This has provided new manufacturing space totalling almost 130,000 sq ft. The Nissha facility, here in Torbay, is now the European Headquarters for the group.
