Craemer to build new factory at Telford

Craemer UK, the storage equipment specialist, is to develop a new factory at Hortonwood West in Telford, creating up to 70 jobs and safeguarding the 65 posts at its existing Telford site.

Dr Achim Brandenburg, the group’s senior managing partner, said: “Our decision to build a new factory as an expansion of our existing UK subsidiary clearly demonstrates the fact that Craemer feels very much at home in Telford.”

And Steve Poppitt, managing director of Craemer UK, said: “This latest significant investment by our German parent company represents an important step in the continual development and expansion of our UK manufacturing operation.”

This purchase is part of the Telford & Wrekin Council and Homes and Communities Agency Land Deal, aimed at bringing forward spare industrial land for development.
