2016 was a record year for Human Machine Interfaces specialist EAO. The company based in Albert Drive, Burgess Hill has been awarded many new rail contracts to supply switch panels on new rolling stock for Cross Rail, Intercity Express and London Overground trains. Their products are designed and manufactured in the EAO factory in Switzerland and distributed locally by EAO who have been in Burgess Hill for over 30 years. 2017 will continue this growth trend as they have now expanded their operations in Burgess Hill to take responsibility for Scandinavia.
Commenting on this , Alex Grout MD of EAO UK says “The staff and management are very motivated by the successes of 2016. We are not seeing any slow down. It’s quite the opposite. And with the projects we have planned for 2017, our site in Burgess Hill goes from strength to strength. Our North Europe home is Burgess Hill and we have no plans to be anywhere else.”
