Gateshead’s Advantex secures six-figure ReNew ELP deal

A technology firm has picked up a six-figure green deal.

Advantex is supplying connectivity, network and access control equipment to Teesside’s ReNew ELP.

Bosses say the partnership will boost operations at ReNew’s Wilton-based recycling plant, which is set to convert up to 80,000 tonnes of waste plastic every year into products to make new plastics and other materials.

Scott Duncan, business development manager at Gateshead-based Advantex, which employs 50 staff, said: “This win showcases our expertise as leaders in connecting complex IT, communication and security systems into single easy to manage solutions.”

He added the contract includes system consultancy, design and development work.

Rob Lye, ReNew’s principal electrical engineer [pictured, above, right, with Scott], added: “Advantex worked hard to fully understand our needs and develop a strong partnership.

“They were sensitive to the challenges of working on a rapidly developing project, delivering a high-quality and cost-effective solution to meet our current and future needs.”
