Exsel Electronics has a base in the town and says it was pleased to be able to help local students during lockdown.
Together with companies within its Group, Explora Foundation, Exsel-Group, Explora Security, Dynasystems, Guartel Technologies, Tarian, Exsel Electronics funds the charity the Explora Scholarship Fund.
With the assistance of “Iternity” its IT security appointee, it has been donating refurbished laptops to school children in need throughout the United Kingdom.
The Welsh base received an email from Sian Knowles Business Cluster Manager for Powys County Council, asking for help in obtaining laptops for local schools.
She said many schools were desperate to provide laptops for those studying from home. She recently visited the Welshpool office of the company to collect laptops.
The Explora Scholarship Fund provides further education to returning service men with disabilities, or a member of their family.
Its projects in Wales currently undergoing research and development include a World Class Cyber Academy.
The group says it is grateful for the support it receives from the Welsh Government in relation to several projects. Its client list includes the Ministry of Defence, U.S. Government, NATO and the United Nations.
