Glenn Fletcher, Tribosonics CEO, said: “The funding will help us to drive further growth and bring our solutions to a wider global audience.”

Tribosonics has tripled its revenue in the past two years and is on course to double it again in the current financial year, he added.

The firm raised £1.5m from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, which is managed by Mercia.
