    Being very old school, I remember when a Mini dash looked like this. Simpler times…

    Brydo, the Newport facility produces 0.18 micron chips. 20 year old technology, run of the mill stuff – the sort used in your washing machine.  Regrettably it’s Chinese companies that have money to invest in businesses.  Seems no good reason to turn the money away, unless politically it’s decided to stop all Chinese money coming into the country – now that would be a thing…

    How nice and uncluttered that mini looks I had forgotten how nice cars were back in the “olden” days.

    Government should be encouraging investment from UK sources rather selling out to the Chinese. I do believe there is a question to be asked about investment/ takeover from China in the UK. Next to the USA, China are the biggest risk to world peace IMO.

    I don’t disagree with you Brydo. Problem is China is the world’s manufacturing base, due to its artificially fixed exchange rate.. All the Chinese goods we buy have to be paid for with currency. What can the Chinese do with foreign currency except spend it in the country it came from?  And until nations stop China cheating the money market, it’s where we are.

    This company are very well known for lenses for glasses and photography. This is another branch of the company that make the chips everyone needs. They have an order book full for the next 15 years. I think their is going to problems with these chips for years to come.
