Technology firm Calnex is eyeing a multi-million pound boost to sales on the back of a deal to collaborate with China Mobile, the world’s largest network operator.

The Linlithgow-based maker of kits for testing mobile phone networks will work with the state-owned giant to help it appraise and select equipment used for future ­infrastructure across the ­country.

Calnex chief Tommy Cook said the deal could boost its sales by up to £3.2 million over the next three years.

Cook, who highlighted the support provided by Scottish Development International in helping the firm get a foothold in the Chinese market, said the tie-up will also see Calnex, which has about 75 staff, boost its workforce by up to 12 people. All of its products are made in Scotland, at Kelvinside Electronics in Kilsyth.
