New products helping to power Tewkesbury firm's expansion

A Tewkesbury industrial company has launched a series of devices as it enters the global machine and robot build market.

Trio Motion Technology, founded in 1987 and designers of industrial automation controls, has developed its first servo drive and electric motors.

The devices, which connect a production machine or robot control system to its moving parts, will see Trio supply manufacturers around the globe with complete automation control packages.

The company plans additional machine automation components for release over the coming years.

Director and co-founder Roy Bamforth said: "It's a significant step for Trio as the new product launch means that we now provide a complete automation package and are able to sell directly to machine and robot manufacturers around the world. This opens a huge market for us.

"It's also great news for Gloucestershire. It's been our home for more than 30 years and it's where the core of our expertise is based.

"The launch means expanded investment for Trio in Tewkesbury which we plan to continue into the future."

A world leader in the design of motion co-ordinators- the computer used to control the precise movement of factory machines and robots - Trio has exceeded 15 per cent growth each year since being acquired by the Chinese Estun Group in 2017.

With the development of the DX4 servo drive and MX series electric motors, Trio has increased the size of the team at its Tewkesbury headquarters as well as its locations around the world as part of its new product development.

The company, which exports more than 90 per cent of its products, has more than 75 employees around the world with 50 per cent based in Gloucestershire.
