A world-class manufacturer of model railway products, and leading publisher of magazines and books, PECO was established in 1946 and is a forward-looking family company with a long tradition of innovative thinking. Located in the picturesque village of Beer in East Devon, we produce high specification, technically superior model railway track, plastic kits, and accessories for the model railway hobby at our two manufacturing sites at Beer and Buckfastleigh. We also publish the UK’s best-selling model railway magazine, the Railway Modeller. PECO has been proud to develop our manufacturing skills ‘in-house’ and our market-leading products and publications are distributed to businesses and retailers throughout the UK and in more than 30 countries around the world. As a company we have experienced significant growth over recent years enabling us to expand production, and we now have a team of 160 people. This is an exciting opportunity to join PECO and be part of our amazing journey.
Alongside the factory and head office in Beer is our tourism site Pecorama. Opened in 1975 Pecorama is one of Devon’s leading tourist attractions, welcoming over 25,000 visitors a season. Pecorama has award winning gardens, stunning sea views and Britain’s finest 7.25 inch railway, where a fleet of steam locomotives pull passenger-carrying trains on a mile long route through the grounds, over bridges, through steep-sided cuttings and a long, dark tunnel.
