POCHIN COMPLETE DEVELOPMENT DEAL WITH THE WELSH GOVERNMENT AND US-BASED CSA GROUP AT HAWARDEN, FLINTSHIRE
Stephen Goodman and Paul Burton from Manchester based JMW Solicitors LLP have recently acted on behalf of Cheshire based developer and contractor, Pochin plc, in relation to the high profile purchase and development of land at Hawarden Business Park, Flintshire from the Welsh Government, and the subsequent sale to SIRA Test and Certification.
The deal will see SIRA (who are part of US-based CSA Group and who certify and test "hazardous location equipment") relocate its UK based HQ to the 27,000 sq ft state of the art office and testing facility within the Deeside Enterprise Zone by Spring 2015 and should lead to the creation of 50 new jobs. Hawarden Business Park is already home to leading manufacturers such as Airbus, Tata and Toyota.
Bob Nicholson, director of Pochin plc, said:
"The relocation of SIRA to the Business Park is an important next step in the growth of the Enterprise Zone – it provides prestige, expertise and investment in the local community."
Edwina Hart (Economy Minister) has welcomed the news: "This is excellent news and a great endorsement of the Deeside Enterprise Zone... 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."
With the help of JMW Solicitors LLP, Pochin plc continue to develop Hawarden Business Park alongside the Welsh Government and Flintshire County Council, and look forward to securing further new business and jobs in Hawarden, Deeside Enterprise Zone and North Wales in the near future.
