A Coatbridge electronics company has secured multi-million-pound international contracts that should allow it to double its turnover over the next two years.

Retronix, which is also creating ten additional jobs, said the two contracts had been dependent on an investment of £400,000 to purchase a new high-tech laser to undertake the work more efficiently.

The firm is projecting additional turnover of £3.8 million over the next two years, and the investment will allow it to target more international work. It is being supported by a regional selective assistance grant from Scottish Enterprise worth £99,000.
