Work starts on site at new £3m global HQ in Telford

Work starts on site at new £3m global HQ in TelfordOil mist extraction specialist, Filtermist International, has marked the start of work on its new £3 million global HQ in Telford that will boost growth and help the economy.

The T54 site, which is owned by the HCA is part of a wider regeneration programme encouraging both national and international businesses to invest in the development of the region.

It was recently listed by the National Building Group and Building Magazine as one of the top 10% of local authorities providing a positive economic and planning environment for investment.

The site’s proximity to the current large-scale development of the Jaguar Land Rover site at i54 in Wolverhampton as well as its position on the M54 and nearby M6, makes it a priority site for Telford and Wrekin Council and the HCA.

Nick Bird, Area Manager for the HCA, Midlands, which owns 31ha of development land at T54 as well as land at Hortonwood and Halesfield business parks in Telford said: “We have been working closely with Telford Council’s Estates Team to market our land and win more new business investment into the Borough.

Filtermist’s announcement is a big breakthrough for T54 and is stimulating more interest in the site, with a further two agreements in the pipeline.”  

Councillor Bill McClements, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for Finance and Enterprise, added: “Telford is home to over 150 international companies and we’re delighted to add Filtermist to the ever growing list.

The town and surrounding areas benefit from a number of inward investment incentives and we pride ourselves on the aftercare we offer to businesses that choose to locate here.”
