Wrexham has been chosen as the base for a new site for a Cheshire-based document shredding and storage company.
The Daily Post reported that Topwood Ltd have acquired a 60,000 sq ft space on Wrexham Industrial Estate, in an investment worth £1.25 million.
According to the news provider, Topwood Ltd intends to develop the former chilled foods production and distribution facility into a space that can accommodate its growing document storage, data destruction and recycling business.
One of the main reasons the firm chose Wrexham as a base was the town’s good road links, the newspaper added.
The site is currently undergoing a significant renovation to accommodate the storage of sensitive data, such as medical records, corporate documents and financial records. Shredding and baling equipment is also being installed. Once it’s up and running it will create ten full-time jobs for the area.
Managing director at the firm Tom Gilruth told the news provider that the company spent over a year considering different locations, but that Wrexham was “an obvious choice”.
The site has “good access to customers in North Wales and the North West’s conurbations surrounding Liverpool, Warrington and Manchester”, he added.
Topwood Ltd isn’t the only business that’s seen the prospects Wrexham Industrial Estate offers. Earlier this month, The Leader3 reported that property management company F1 Real Estate Management intends to expand its presence on the site.
According to the news provider, the extra space it will take on will be used for a hotel, pub and retail development, and will make F1 the largest landlord on the industrial estate.
