The firm says it can tap into a wide pool of expertise in Bangor
Thirty three jobs are to be created in Bangor, Gwynedd, with the expansion of a 3D modelling company.

Brandsauce, which designs the software for images of consumer products including pharmaceuticals and pet foods, is relocating from Manchester.

It is to move its HQ to the Technium CAST (Centre for Advanced Software Technology) at Parc Menai by the end of the year.

Last week, another company announced it was to create 190 jobs at the site.

Brandsauce said the expansion meant it could tap into specialist help from the Technium's partners.

"We're growing and want to ensure the best possible support for our development," said managing director Keith Evans, a Welsh businessman who set up the company in 2004.

"Here, we can tap into a wide range of expertise through the University of Wales, Bangor as well as a highly-skilled pool of IT graduates."

The firm generates and manages virtual 3D models of goods - from canned and bottled drinks to large packaged products - which are used in marketing and advertising.

It has stuck deals with companies like the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline but also said it wants to help small firms access the latest media technology.

Enterprise Minister Andrew Davies said the company realised for growth it needed to "tap into the strong and buoyant software sector we have clustered in and around Bangor and the expertise we have at Technium CAST".

  • Last week Inspired Gaming Group which provides support for computerised slot machines and has recently moved to Parc Menai revealed it would create 190 jobs there.
