Irvine-based Interlink Electronics says it is opening up a new, engineering center in Scotland, where it plans to place an "advanced engineering team", according to the company. Interlink Electronics said the new group will be based at an "innovation hub" near the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Interlink says the new engineering team initially will include five engineers. The company said the move will help it extend its European presence and customer base. As part of the effort, Interlink says it has created a new, UK-based entity called Interlink Electronics Limited, with the assistance of Scottish Enterprise, the country's national economic development agency.
