Local Business Breaks Ground on £3M Investment for Sweet Growth

Local Business Breaks Ground on £3M Investment for Sweet Growth

31st January, 2018

Pecan Deluxe Candy (Europe) Ltd has broken ground on the ambitious factory extension that will accommodate the company’s continuing growth and prosperity into the 2020s.

Due for completion in October 2018, the company’s £3 million factory extension investment will not only enhance the employees’ working environment but also significantly expand the warehousing, logistics & manufacturing demands of the business. The internal restructuring will provide improved access between the various production & storage units, improving efficiency through the reduction of stock movements, and a series of new equipment installations will increase production capacities in the chocolate moulding and bakery areas.

Recognising massive demand for the company’s frozen ingredients, the investment also includes the provision of loading canopies & the addition of new onsite frozen storage units – powered by a new, dedicated substation.

Helping Managing Director Graham Kingston with these developments is Stephanie Cryer, Director of Finance and Administration, who was recently presented with a 20-year long service award.

Stephanie explained:

Thanks to its reputation across Europe as an innovative food tailor for any type of food company, Pecan Deluxe Europe has had an incredibly successful year with a record turnover of £13.5million. We expect our growth to continue with £15m turnover anticipated for next year and further growth into the 2020s – thanks in no small part to this expansion and enhancement of our R&D and production operations.

She continued on to state:

Pecan Deluxe already offers international standard ingredient development and production facilities, and we expect our latest investment to consolidate our reputation for innovation and quality within the food manufacturing arena, thus underpinning our ongoing growth and of course creating the opportunity for further investment to help provide customers across the world with their next new product launch.
