This purchase is part of the Telford & Wrekin Council and Homes and Communities Agency Land Deal, aimed at bringing forward spare industrial land for development. Since the launch of their existing Telford factory in 2006, Craemer UK Ltd has grown significantly with turnover increasing 500 per cent to £25.5 million in 2016. The company has been looking to expand its existing site in Hortonwood 1 but have been constrained by the nearby A442 and adjoining occupiers. So instead Craemer intends to develop its new factory at Hortonwood West, creating up to 70 jobs and safeguarding the 65 posts at its existing Telford site.
