Flint-headquartered global wet wipe manufacturer Nice-Pak International is expanding its UK operations by building a new £40m factory.

The Aber Park-based company will create more than 100 new jobs over time at a 400,000 sq ft manufacturing unit, in addition to the relocation of its workforce of 150 currently based at Hindley Green.

The bespoke factory, at Westwood Park, Wigan, will be fitted with the latest technologies to facilitate every stage of the wet wipe manufacturing process.

Nice-Pak International, which employs more than 500 people at its Flint headquarters, manufactures more than 650 million packs of baby, cosmetic, household and personal care wipes every year, including branded and own-label wipes for some of Europe’s largest retailers and brand owners.

Michael Staton, CEO of Nice-Pak International, said:

“The new manufacturing unit will consolidate our position as Europe’s market leader in wet wipe production.

We will be investing in the very latest manufacturing technology designed to allow us to meet every aspect of best practice in the production of pre-moistened wipes.

We are building on more than half a century of experience in the industry, and this development will further help us to increase our growing share of the market.

The development will support the continued growth of Nice-Pak International.”

Work to clear the Westwood Park site is now under way, with the first batch of products from the new manufacturing unit expected in the second quarter of 2016.

The development has been backed by the Regional Growth Fund and Wigan Council.
