Flann to expand workforce to meet demandIn response to a positive start to 2018 and a strong order book from customers around the world, Bodmin-based Flann Microwave (www.flann.com) is taking on six more people to meet demand.

With a current team of 60, the company has a global reputation in the design and manufacture of precision microwave communications equipment, which can be used in applications such as radar and to allow Internet and mobile data to be carried between mobile phone masts or through satellite links.

Chief executive James Watts said: “We are proud of the reputation Flann has around the world for innovation, commitment to engineering expertise, attention to detail and customer service.

“We have a strategy in place to continue to grow the business, so we are delighted to be in a position to increase the size of the team.”

With the company’s roots in the development of radar during the Second World War, microwave and wave guide technology forms the backbone of the digital communications network and is a vital part of the infrastructure of modern life.

Flann’s innovations have been pivotal in the development of mobile-telephone networks, from the very inception of the technology through to the huge growth in mobile use over the last two decades — and right up to on-going research into next-generation 5G communications.

Flann also makes critical components and test equipment for wave-guide-based applications such as air traffic control and airport security systems, traffic-light radar sensors, collision avoidance technology for cars and secure communications networks.

The company serves customers in the telecoms, automotive, aerospace, defence and research sectors, exporting more than 80% of its production.

It has also worked with UK and overseas government agencies to write many of the standards used in the industry.
