Wisbech technology company Anglia Components achieves PLC status


Anglia Components, a Wisbech technology company, today announced that it is changing the registered company trading name from Anglia Components Ltd to Anglia Components PLC. Anglia recently earned an award for its business performance from Panasonic Industry Europe, the electronic component division of one of the world’s largest and best-known technology brands. In the last year, it has also received awards from UK connector manufacturer Harwin, the US based technology company Bourns, and STMicroelectronics, one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of silicon chips.

The change to PLC status means that the company will be subject to more stringent and complex auditing and financial requirements, which will increase the confidence of global key customers and global suppliers.

Commenting on the change, Anglia CEO Steve Rawlins said, “I am delighted to announce this change during our 50th anniversary year. We have grown extremely rapidly and faster than the market. The change in status reflects the current scale of the business and the level of companies it now trades with. The more rigorous scrutiny to which a PLC is subjected allows us to demonstrate our growth, quality and capabilities and reflects positively to potential customers and suppliers.”

The move only affects Anglia’s legal name. The company registration number, bank accounts all remain the same and the business will continue to trade as ‘Anglia’. Anglia Components PLC is a closed PLC whose shares are not traded on the stock exchange.
