LONDON The assets, stock and order book of Banbury-based contract electronics manufacturer General Hybrid UK, which had been in administration since last November, have been bought by a new company, Copernica. Most of the staff of the former company have joined Copernica, minimising interruption to production.
The directors of Copernica are Alan Longland, general manager of General Hybrid since 2003, and Mark Wilkinson, formerly marketing manager with Flint, and the company is trading from the same address on the Acre Estate in Banbury.
Longland said: “The sale of the business to Copernica will allow us to continue to meet the requirements of customers and to develop and widen the range of services offered.”
Copernica will continue to design and manufacture thick-film hybrid circuits, sub-contract assemblies and high-voltage resistors and act as a distibutor for specialised electronic components and devices. In addition to manufacture in the UK, the company offers high-volume offshore manufacturing facilities.
