Dickson in £1m South Shields factory expansion
Meat producer Dickson is putting plans in place to increase its South Shields production facilities as part of a £1m investment in extending its factory.
The north east firm will add 575sqm to its existing South Tyneside factory and bakery in a bid to grow its expanding wholesale division.
The factory extension will allow the company, which produces a range of pies, pastries, sausages, bacon and cold meats, to continue to develop its product range to meet changing consumer buying habits, the company claimed.
MD Michael Dickson said: “The new facility will allow significant reductions in double handling , alleviate congestion, improve work flow and the general working environment for our staff.
“We hope that the improved facilities will fuel the on-going expansion of our retail & wholesale businesses allowing us to significantly increase production capabilities and operate more efficiently, yet remain true to our core values and heritage of producing quality food for the local market.”
The company added that the new facilities will increase production efficiencies but also means that the local supply chain into the business can be sustained and developed.
