Terinex Flexibles to move to new £8m Derbyshire facility
Terinex Flexibles is set to move to a new £8m facility in Foston, South Derbyshire. The new site will be more than double the size of its current factory, with construction currently underway.
The 46,000 sq ft, state-of-the-art premises will feature production, warehousing and research and development facilities. The building will also include advanced sustainable energy systems to recover heat for re-use, and solar panels for generating power to operate the factory. Part of OGM Holdings Group, Terinex Flexibles is a supplier of printed flexible packaging films and solutions used within the food, pet food and medical packaging industries.
OGM Holdings says it is aiming to create the most sustainable, low carbon footprint, flexible packaging factory in the UK. Completion of the building is expected in January 2024 and will bring further employment opportunities to the area.
The work is the latest phase of Dove Valley Park, a 200-acre industrial and distribution development in Foston. Clowes Developments and its partners have been developing the business park for a number of years and is already home to occupiers including Top Hat, JCB, Müller, Futaba Ltd and GXO.
Paul Wightman, group managing director of the OGM Group, said: “Our new location for Terinex Flexibles will facilitate the further growth of our business and we are looking forward to adding to our team in South Derbyshire. The new site will be more than double the size of our current factory and will accommodate new equipment, our expanding team and increased R&D capabilities to benefit our food, petfood and medical packaging customers. Reducing the environmental impact of industry in the UK is both a moral obligation and a business necessity. We aim to build the UK’s best flexible packaging factory with the lowest environmental footprint producing very high quality products. We can’t wait to move in next year.”
Marc Freeman, director at Clowes Developments, said: “Dove Valley Park is a fantastic location for logistical enterprises, benefiting from easy access to the A50. The site continues to grow in popularity with occupiers, creating valuable employment opportunities in South Derbyshire. We are looking forward to delivering the new site for Terinex Flexibles. Clowes Developments is currently constructing a further 270,000 sq ft across the site which will enhance the existing offering for perspective occupants.”
