Barry plastics maker relocates
Barry-based plastics specialist Roperhurst has acquired a new facility close to its current base.
The unit, located on the Ty Verlon Industrial Estate, incorporates 13,000 sq ft with space to accommodate future business growth.
Roperhurst is relocating following market improvement and an increase in international fabrication opportunities.
Managing director Bob Lane said: "The acquisition offered us, as a business, the unique opportunity to double our fabrication space and minimise the disruption to our locally based workforce.
"We operate in a niche market with highly skilled and loyal people, and the purchase of this site within half a mile of our existing premises alongside major investment in staff numbers, plant and machinery provides a firm foundation for the next 40 years."
The move was brokered by GVA and Knight Frank.
