Ford Electronics Limited

For around 40 years, a two storey building stood at the corner of Corn Hill, next to the Old Steam Mill. It was occupied by Ford Electronics, which was set up in Wolverhampton in 1966. The firm specialises in consultancy and the design of data and voice communications and industrial automation. Projects include the production of custom systems for use in engineering, steelmaking and car manufacturing; for monitoring, control, materials handling and automated warehousing.

The firm has also produced equipment for railway telecommunications systems, for railways in the UK and overseas, including British Rail, London Underground, and railways in Brazil, Taiwan, Thailand, and India, etc.
