Blackburn-based industrial automation spare parts and repair supplier Northern Industrial has announced the creation of sixteen new jobs following global expansion from online sales.

The recruitment drive comes after the 40-year-old company seen annual sales grow by 3 million since the launch of its website three years ago.

The website, which the award-winning firm designed and maintains in-house, currently has around 4.2 million pages, and enables the company to provide new, reconditioned and obsolete parts and repair services across the world from its premises on Shadsworth Industrial Estate, Blackburn.

Sourcing from over 1,350 manufacturers, the company covers over 200,000 part numbers and holds approximately £7m in stock.

Managing director David Lenehan said: “We’re looking to recruit sixteen positions immediately across a spectrum of roles to support our ongoing growth, boosted substantially by the success of our website, which has allowed us to tap into a global customer base.

“The last few years have been great for us and every indication is that it will only get better.  Although we have customers in a wide variety of manufacturing disciplines, one thing they all have in common is they want to avoid downtime at all costs.

“Sometimes you just need someone on your side in a stressful breakdown situation.  Our aim is to provide the spare parts and repairs customers need as quickly as possible to minimise downtime.  We specialise in keeping businesses up and running, with high quality industrial electronic spare parts, repairs and onsite support.

“We employ the best electronic engineers and provide all customers with a dedicated account manager to keep them up-to-date, while our sourcing team uses the most thorough methods and industry knowledge to track down hard-to-find obsolete parts

“Having the right staff with the right attitude is absolutely essential to us.  Both electronics engineers and multi-lingual staff are of special interest, so if you feel you may have the right skills, get in touch.”
