Broughton Trader is run by John Peirson, a resident of Broughton Astley. I am a Sole Trader, with business name Right Time. Having a practical background in Science and Electronics and training in Mathematics and Computing, most of my career has been in the field of high tech software development.
I came to this area in 1996, to work on a £1M project at GEC Alsthom Engineering Systems Ltd., Whetstone. They have changed names and owners several times since then. The project constructed a giant robotic arm, or 'manipulator', to work on Remote Boiler Inspection in Torness Nuclear Power Station, Scotland. My role was to develop and install supervisory control software for the motion of the arm.

We will advertise or 'market' this website in various ways, so that more and more people will discover it. For example, you already know where we are and Google knows where we are. Yahoo and MSN also know where we are...
Businesses generally like to know what advertising is working for them. If you contact a business which you discover here, they will probably appreciate being told that you found them at Broughton Trader.
