Zytronic is opening its doors to the community as part of Make UK’s National Manufacturing Day celebrations on July 7th, 2022

Zytronic will showcase potential careers and jobs on offer and run ‘through the keyhole’ tours of the business.  

British manufacturing companies are opening their doors in a UK-wide “Open House” on July 7th, 2022, to give their local communities the chance to see first-hand the potential careers and jobs on offer in this exciting and diverse sector.  Zytronic is delighted to be participating in this year’s inaugural event, organised by manufacturing trade association, Make UK. The aim is to encourage all age groups from school leavers to more experienced workers thinking of a new direction or reskilling, to consider a career in manufacturing, as well as providing local communities with the possibility to learn more about the businesses on their very doorstep.

Zytronic has been part of the Blaydon on Tyne community, manufacturing projected capacitive technology touchscreens and other sophisticated glass products for well over 20 years. Along with other local manufacturers ranging from aerospace to soft drinks, we will host a series of visits to our production facilities. Visitors will be able to talk directly to members of staff about how our patented and award-winning touchscreen products are manufactured and what employment opportunities are available in our business.

Visitors will be able to take part in a guided tour around the Zytronic manufacturing facilities between 1pm and 3pm. To reserve your place on the tour, please visit our Eventbrite page:

Mark Cambridge, CEO of Zytronic said:

“Zytronic is delighted to be participating in Make UK’s National Manufacturing Day on Thursday 7th July, showcasing our technologies, products, processes and people. National Manufacturing Day provides students, potential employees and the local residents with the opportunity to visit our manufacturing facilities, and to get a ‘behind the scenes’ tour of an internationally successful local business.

We are always on the lookout for new talent to help us to produce our touchscreen products and latest innovations such as ElectroglaZ®, our latest transparent power delivery technology.  Our company can offer a diverse range of career opportunities from production operatives to electronic engineering.

We are looking forward to local residents, school students and prospective employees visiting us to experience what modern day manufacturing looks like. Even though we export over 90% of our products globally - I’m sure people will be surprised to learn just how often they’ve seen or used our touchscreens in the local area – from digital wayfinders in the Metrocentre, drinks dispensers in burger restaurants, to ticket machines on the Metro! Visitors will be able to meet our team and hear first-hand what inspired them to join us.”
