THIRTY new jobs will be created when a hi-tech manufacturer relocates to Worthing.
Rayner Intraocular Lenses has had planning permission approved to construct a new headquarters and production plant on the former Eurotherm site in Dominion Way.
The company, currently based in Hove, will transfer its 170-strong workforce to the site and will expand its overall number of staff to around 200.
Councillor Bryan Turner said: “It’s a very good thing for Worthing. It’s a very hi-tech clean business with skilled jobs. It’s very good for the economy locally and it’s very good from a national picture as a lot of the products are exported.”
