New Meat Processing Facility for Pickstock Ashby Ltd
J-Ross Developments Ltd acting, for another Pickstock Group company Pickstock Ashby Ltd, has recently been successful in securing detailed planning permission for a new 85,000 sq.ft. meat processing facility at Hortonwood, Telford.
J-Ross Developments were responsible for providing development management and architectural services including the negotiation and acquisition of the site from the Homes and Communities Agency, the design of the new facility, and the management of the professional team through the planning phase of the project.
J-Ross Developments Ltd continue to have an involvement in the project management of the professional team through the construct phase and monitoring the building contract through to completion, reporting on programme, quality and budget.
The development is expected to be open for business before the end of July 2013 and represents a significant investment for the Pickstock Ashby Ltd, which will result in a state of the art new facility and the creation of over 165 new jobs in the local economy.
The proposals form part of a major expansion plan for the company, which has shown strong growth over the last 5 years and now supplies over 20 different countries including several outside of Europe, with over 80% of its annual product going to export.
The company’s success in exporting to overseas markets was recently recognised when they were ranked 36 out of 200 companies shortlisted for the Sunday Times Fast Track International 200 Awards.
Greg Pickstock Managing Director of Pickstock Ashby Ltd confirmed “Our building contractors made a start on site earlier this month and are working towards completing the new facility within a six month build programme.”
Nick Scott CEO of J-Ross Developments Ltd added “We have been working to a fast track programme and are delighted with the progress to date. We are looking forward to the new facility being open before the end of July in line with our client’s requirements.”
