A few months later circuit board sales took off and by 1976 the premises were too cramped and the roof leaked. Roger, the younger son joined the firm, having a natural bent for electronics, and seemingly able to repair anything whatever, became very useful and it was hard to keep him away at week ends.

A large Tannery, near Todmorden, empty for many years was purchased freehold with aid from the bank. The shell of the building was sound, with thick concrete floors but with no fittings and needing extensive alterations to comply with factory and fire regulations. It took three years for Peter working with a labourer and occasional advice from an architect to cut out a section of the first floor and construct a wide brick and concrete staircase. He built an outside effluent tank for chemical drainage, and installed all the complicated plumbing and water timing devices used for cleansing boards.

In May 1983, after long and protracted negotiations, the adjoining Stoneswood Mill and land was purchased. I retired from my directorship and passed on my shares in the company.
