Directors at Solid State Logic in Begbroke invited local MP Nicola Blackwood to see its UK base and manufacturing facility, and discuss the firm’s current recruitment drive. The firm currently employs 120 people locally (160 globally) and has vacancies at its HQ – in engineering, R&D and product support.

Nicola Blackwood and Antony DavidA trained classical singer – she gained a First in Music at St Anne’s College, Oxford and an M.Phil. in Musicology from Emmanuel College, Cambridge – Blackwood took a tour of the factory facility to see consoles being assembled. She was also shown the Product Demonstration building which houses six acoustically treated and fully equipped sound studios, each with an array of SSL consoles and smaller products.

‘It’s great to see a local company doing so well internationally in the music and broadcast industries – and recruiting at a time when unemployment is rising,’ she said. ‘I have enjoyed seeing behind the scenes at SSL, seeing the consoles at various stages of assembly on the factory floor, and going to the actual studios to see the finished products in action. I’ve spent time in recording studios before but have never got involved in the production side. After today I understand a bit more about the technology that allows producers and engineers to record and mix audio, and see why Solid State Logic is considered a leader in its industry.’

‘We have enjoyed the opportunity to show Nicola around, and welcome her positive response to our business,’ saus SSL MD, Antony David. ‘We consider ourselves lucky to be positioned in Oxford where there is such a formidable pool of talent within a commutable radius. Of course the macroeconomic climate is affecting the industries we operate in – music, broadcast and post – but the company is growing nonetheless. We have a strong reputation for technological innovation and customer service, and have diversified our product range over recent years to appeal to wider markets. All of this adds up to increased demand, which is why we are on a recruitment drive.’

The MP has also nominated Solid State Logic’s AWS 948 SuperAnalogue mixing console for the Made by Britain project, organised by the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group. All 650 UK MPs have been asked to find a product that is manufactured in their constituency, with the aim of building up a diverse and comprehensive picture of British industry today.
