The article states that electroluminescent display maker Pelikon Ltd. has put £500,000 into its Cardiff production line. The company's CEO Mike Powell said that they have improved the production capability and quality. It effectively doubles the number of units they can make. The money has bought a second printer for the line. Powell said that the bottleneck in their production was printing the electronics and the light emitters and the new printer has given them the ability to produce an additional six million units per year.
