Expansion of Wrexham bakery to continue

January 30, 2018 by  

Wrexham’s Village Bakery is looking to develop a site which once housed a wire factory.

Work on the old Carparo Wire space fits in with the overall growth plan of the Village Bakery. The hope is that employment can be safeguarded and created by the move. Aspirational firms can use printing services in Wrexham for promotional purposes. Details of a planning application were reported in the Daily Post

“The proposed development will provide employment opportunities for local tradesmen, of which there are many in the Wrexham area, and building works such as this will stimulate wider benefits, not only in terms of generating wealth at the build stage, but also during the lifetime of the building by positively contributing to the local economy by employing local people.”

The site in question is situated on the Wrexham Industrial Estate. The area at Ash Road South will be sufficient for the provision of extra parking spaces for cars. Importantly, there shall also be room for vehicles to load and unload goods.

The bakery has been in business since the 1930s. The craft enterprise hopes to create about 100 local jobs through its latest initiative.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles opened an Innovation Centre and Baking Academy in the area a few years ago. Since then, the Wrexham-based section of the enterprise has acquired a workforce of 160 staff. Meanwhile, annual turnover is approaching £20 million.
