Electronic Factory
Electronic Factory
Formerly Fujitsu and opened with great publicity for the manufacture of memory devices (DRAMs).

In the mid-1990s the world market for these chips collapsed. It was possible to buy the chips from companies in Korean for less than 50p each (compared with as much as $50 each when the factory was built). Closure was inevitable and at the end of 1998 the company closed the plant.

The site is now operated by Filtronics.
