Recticel Group, the Brussels-based insulation and foam product manufacturer, is to open a brand new state-of-the-art production site in Meir, Stoke-on-Trent – creating up to 40 jobs.
The company currently imports products into the UK from Belgium via Recticel UK, but is now opening the new manufacturing and warehousing site in response to the recent increase in demand for insulation.
“New manufacturing operations are always good news, particularly as a new year begins and some of the more established local jobs in manufacturing have reduced. Stoke-on-Trent is an excellent central location with a fine reputation for manufacturing,” said plant manager Andrew Brown.
Production at the new facility is due to begin in June 2008.
