Springing into new office space
06 August 2018
Cromwell Polythene, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of sacks, bags and speciality products for the storage and collection of waste and recyclables, is set to move into a new workspace during spring 2019, following a period of significant development.
The family-run business will be moving into a bespoke facility purchased from property development company Glentrool Estates Group at its pioneering Sherburn2 75-acre business park at Sherburn-in-Elmet, near Leeds. A 50,000sqft distribution warehouse, featuring smart wrap-around offices, will cater for the firm’s predicted growth, whilst creating a contemporary and welcoming business hub for Cromwell’s customers, suppliers and staff.
Cromwell Polythene MD James Lee said: “Our business is thriving, thanks to our commitment to reliably and consistently supplying high-quality products with the lowest environmental impact. We have exciting plans to grow extensively over the next few years and this move is a sound investment for us.
“The Sherburn2 development near to our current office is perfect for us, allowing us to remain in a superb business and logistics location while creating new premises to suit our needs. We currently employ 33 people. Our move will double our warehouse capacity, enabling us to create many more new jobs and to continue expanding our operations. In the short to medium term we hope this will create another 7 jobs. Once we’ve fully grown into the site we believe we could support somewhere in the region of 50 employees.”
