St Francis Group has sold 3.6 acres of land at its 74-acre Silverwood’s Business Park in Kidderminster to filtration products manufacturer Barton Firtop.
Barton Firtop is to build new warehouse, manufacturing, testing and office facilities, merging three existing sites.
Phase 1 will provide 40,000 sq ft of facilities and employment for up to 100 people and Phase 2 will see this expanded to 60,000 sq ft and potentially an additional 50 employees.
“This is a really exciting time for the Company enabling our current level of growth to progress to the next stage,” said Barton Firtop managing director Kevin Troughton. “Our company currently has space limitations and this problem is compounded by operating between three separate sites, so this new-build will enhance our capabilities and enable us to meet ever increasing capacity requirements, ultimately resulting in further increases in turnover and staffing levels.”
