Tech manufacturer Filtronic seals £350,000 deal with computing company
Electronics firm Filtronic is toasting a new £350,000 deal with a computing company.
The firm, which makes telecoms components for a range of sectors from its bases in NETPark, Sedgefield, County Durham, Yeadon in Leeds and Maryland, USA, is set to design, develop and supply microwave filters and diplexers.
The new contract was awarded to Filtronic because of its long-established experience of designing compact, high-performance filter and diplexer modules.
It said the application will be used within the microwave circuits of a quantum computer. The project is expected to complete within FY2023.
Richard Gibbs, chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted to win this contract demonstrating the flexibility of the technology we offer and its use across many adjacent markets.
“Filters are a cornerstone of our heritage, and we will continue to seek out opportunities for this technology in products and markets that require complex solutions and are non-commoditised. “Quantum computing is an exciting new market which we believe could lead to further work.”

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.
It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.
CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.
We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.
The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.
