Leading global provider of product testing services CSA Group to move into Deeside
Economy Minister Edwina Hart has welcomed news that CSA Group, a leading global provider of product certification and testing services, is moving its UK, Sira Certification operations to a new specially designed testing facility on Hawarden Business Park, potentially creating 50 new jobs over the next five years.
The move by CSA Group Sira, a leading provider of hazardous location equipment testing and certification, is the first major relocation into the Enterprise Zone.
The new facility will be 27,000 sq ft and will offer testing and certification of equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres and will include the capacity to expand.
“We are very excited to be a part of the Deeside Enterprise Zone,” said Dana Parmenter, Managing Director of CSA Group Sira. “Our new, state-of-the-art facility in Hawarden Business Park puts us right in the heart of a manufacturing centre of excellence. We look forward contributing to the continued growth and innovation in the Enterprise Zone.”
Pochin Property, which acquired the site from the Welsh Government, is set to begin work on the new development within the next six weeks, completing construction in Spring 2015.
Hawarden Business Park is already home to leading manufacturers such as Airbus, Tata and Toyota.
This new facility will add to the skills and expertise already found in the Deeside Enterprise Zone.
“This is excellent news and a great endorsement of the Deeside Enterprise Zone,” said Economy Minister Edwina Hart. “The Welsh Government is pleased at its continued success and growth and Sira’s move to Flintshire will provide great benefits to the local economy and the local community.”
The project follows an extensive consultation process, and is a continuation of the work Pochin Property has done alongside the Welsh Government and Flintshire County Council to develop Hawarden Business Park.
“This is very welcome news and a boost for Deeside Enterprise Zone,” said David Jones, Chair of Deeside Enterprise Zone. “It will send out a strong message to the business community and help promote the benefits of locating in the Enterprise Zone.”Spotted something?
