Technology purchase prompts capacitor start-up

LONDON — GSPK Circuits Ltd is launching a company to manufacture and develop a specialist range of standard and custom made capacitors and interference compressors for industrial, audio and automotive markets.

Ampohm Wound Products Ltd is based in Treburley, Cornwall, and has been created out of the assets of Ampohm (Capacitors) Ltd which ceased trading in January 2006. Having taken over the technology, GSPK Circuits Ltd (Knaresborough, England) has already got the new company in full operation and it intends to focus its efforts on developing vital skills and expertise within this region.

Ampohm Wound Products Ltd is set to continue the manufacture and development of Ampohm’s specialist range of standard and custom made capacitors and interference compressors for industrial, audio and automotive markets.

The establishment of AWP is seen as a strategic move that dovetails nicely with GSPK Circuits’ specialist printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturing capabilities and the company’s expertise in the sale and distribution of PCBs will enhance Ampohm’s performance and drive it into new markets.

Steve Lloyd, Managing Director of GSPK Circuits Ltd and Ampohm Wound Products Ltd said. “This is a very exciting new venture for GSPK Circuits Ltd. The new company will be run by Director Robert Johnston and the invaluable expertise of ex Ampohm (Capacitors) Ltd employee Andrew Slade.”

GSPK has also developed a product which is relevant to both lighting and automotive markets. Reflecta-finish enables light from power driven LEDs to be enhanced by the use of custom laminated finishes.
