A company which manufactures parts to make lorries more aerodynamic has moved to Bourne, creating new jobs for the area.

Aerodyne Equipment, manufacturers of bespoke aerodynamic solutions for commercial vehicles, has moved into the former Trackline International Limited site in Tunnel Bank.

Trackline closed at the beginning of March 2012 after going into administration.

About 30 staff lost their jobs in the collapse.

Aerodyne has been trading from Innovation House since December when the company relocated from Perivale in north-west London.

A spokesman said: “We have a very intense plan for development and growth over the next few years at our new factory in Bourne.

“We have brought 10 employees with us from London and we have taken on three new employees in the area and we are actively recruiting new staff to join our skilled workforce and to help the company continue to grow.”

Aerodyne, which was founded in 1979, bought the 15,407sq ft warehouse and surrounding yard in the Cherry Holt industrial area for £302,000 from Savills Peterborough who were acting on behalf of administrators.  

Director at Savills Peterborough, Paul Farrow, said: “We are delighted to have attracted Aerodyne Equipment to Bourne.”

A planning permission application by Blue Sky Plastic Recycling to build two new industrial buildings to accommodate plastic recycling plant and associated storage in South Fen Road, Bourne, was deferred at a meeting South Kesteven District Council Development Control Committee on Tuesday.

The development which will also include new landscaping, car parking, access, weighbridge and sub station will be looked at again on February 19.
