    UK manufacturer moves

    Berkshire based Electronic Manufacturing Solutions Ltd (EMS), has recently – just over the weekend actually – relocated and added some much needed space to its operations.
    The company left its old 5’694 square foot facility in Thatcham and moved into its new, 15,693 square foot, facility in Newbury, just some three miles away.
