An expanding business is set to provide a further jobs boost to Telford after investing more than £100,000 following a move to new premises.
Meatex, which provides a B2B wholesale meat trading marketplace and resource for industry professionals, has been operating for more than 12 years out of its head office in Seaford, Eastbourne.
It opened a Telford office in January of last year at Grosvenor House, Central Park.
But continued growth has now seen the company move to Stafford Park 10, with the promise of more than 10 new jobs.
Sales Director Ross Whetton said: “We have brought a distribution hub, which has been 12 months in the making and we are looking to grow.
“The offices have been refurbished and downstairs, the factory side of the site is being cleared out, a blank canvas, with new, efficient and eco-friendly fridges to be installed. We are investing more than £100,000.
“It’s a great location, perfect – 40 minutes from Birmingham and an hour and 40 minutes from Manchester.
“We are offering a collection point now for a lot of our clients and it’s a big hub so will need extra people to man it, which will create more jobs for Telford.
“We will be looking for at least ten new roles initially from warehouse management to order pickers to technical staff as well as a logistics manager. That’s all part of the plan and it’s great to be able to offer opportunities.”
And the move will also see additional apprentices.
“We brought two apprentices from locally this year,” Ross added. “They have settled in and it’s like they have been here for five years. They have fitted right into the family.”
