Investor buys majority stake in Kontroltek

Bridgend-based industrial automotive repair company Kontroltek is set to expand internationally after welcoming a new majority shareholder on its board.

Kontroltek revealed that Tony Jones, the former majority stakeholder of The Lektronix Group, had purchased a "substantial shareholding" in the business.

He will provide advice to Kontroltek in a bid to bolster the business, including tips on recruiting suitable staff overseas.

The company said the support will be "crucial" to managing director Andrew Follant.

He said: "His guidance and expertise as we look to expand globally will be a valuable asset to Kontroltek, and we're very excited to see what the future will bring with Tony helping to pave the way for our first international expansion."

Jones added: "My role is to help Andrew move the business into the international arena and accelerate growth even further."
