A LEADING technology solutions provider based in Redditch has won a prestigious contract with the Department of Justice.

Steatite Ltd, beat a number of international blue chip companies to obtain the Electronic Monitoring Hardware Contract, which demonstrates the success of its technology.

The firm, based in Ravensbank Business Park, is a market leader in the design, development and supply of rugged and industrial computers, custom lithium battery solutions and secure communication systems.

Redditch MP Karen Lumley, who recently visited the firm, said: “This is a brilliant local achievement which I believe must be celebrated as contracts such as these are very beneficial to both the national and regional economy.

"I’m sure the success of Steatite will continue into the future.”
