2 Minute Read
An animal feed manufacturer has acquired a site at a North Yorkshire industrial development for its new state-of-the-art facility.
Masham-based I’Anson Brothers has completed the purchase of a 13-acre employment site at Dalton New Bridge (DNB), a commercial and industrial development in North Yorkshire.
I’Anson will shortly begin building a state-of-the-art 23,000 sq ft feed mill and new site service road at Dalton New Bridge.
Managing director Chris I’Anson said: “This is very significant investment for our company and is the major part of our strategy to secure 50-year further growth for the longer-term sustainability of our business and the future generations of our employees, customers and family.”
Lindsay Ross, spokesman for DNB, said: “I’Anson is a long-established and reputable North Yorkshire business and we are very pleased to see their move to Dalton New Bridge. The new mill will be a local landmark.”
The mill, which received planning permission from Hambleton District Council last year, represents the largest investment in I’Anson’s history.
I’Anson’s headquarters will remain in Masham, where it will continue to manufacture an extensive range of micronized feeds, specialty rations and horse feeds.
The new facility at Dalton will focus on the production of bulk farm feeds and create up to 20 more jobs in addition to the 90 strong existing workforce.
Leader of Hambleton District Council, Councillor Mark Robson, said: “As leader of the council I am delighted to welcome I’Anson Brothers to Hambleton. It’s always good to see businesses thriving and expanding especially in the current challenging climate.
