Up to 100 skilled jobs are set to be created in Northamptonshire after a company announced a significant investment in a new engineering and manufacturing facility.

The adi Group, a multi-disciplinary engineering firm, has chosen a base at the Crown Way Industrial Estate in Rushden to launch in May.

The Birmingham-based company says it chose the site due to its proximity to a number of the firm’s current and future key clients.

Alan Lusty, CEO of adi Group, said: “Our new Northamptonshire base gives us extra flexibility and enables us to simplify the way we deliver services to our partners in the region,” he said.

“In recent years, we have adopted a proactive approach to achieving our strategic objectives, so this investment is a real expression of not only that but of our confidence in the area to provide the skills we’ll need to exceed the expectations of our customers.

“adi Group has been operating in this area for many years but we now believe the time is right to further invest, bringing our services closer to our customer base, as well as allowing us to add value to prospective customers across the East Midlands and down towards London.”
