A Swindon manufacturing company is growing its operations and headcount by more than 20 per cent, after winning 10 tender contracts and driving forward its electric vehicle (EV) charging and payment products.

Intelligent parking company Metric Group has expanded its production, field, customer service and business support teams to a workforce of 127 people, over the past four months. It is now actively recruiting to fill seven additional roles, including three full stack developers.

In addition to contracts wins, supplying and servicing pay and display parking terminals for local authorities across the country, the manufacturer was also awarded funding by Innovate UK to bring an Integrated Charge and Park Payment Terminal (ICAPPT) to market for EV Payment Solutions, in March this year.

Head of Solutions Sandy Mace, said: “I joined Metric Group straight from college and over the past three decades I’ve enjoyed a fantastic career trajectory, which has led me to become part of the senior leadership team.
