A new factory for a local food supplier has been invested in by Hastings Borough Council in a bid to increase jobs in the town.
BD Foods’ new site on Castleham Industrial Estate is due to open in the new year.
Built by Westridge Construction, the new unit will provide much needed extra space for the business already operating in the area.
Council leader Peter Chowney attended the ‘topping out’ ceremony; the age old tradition of bestowing luck and thanks to builders when a structure reaches its topmost point.
“This unit is a great addition to the offer at Castleham and we are very pleased that BD Foods will be the new tenants,” he said.
“They currently occupy eight units at Castleham and this one will enable them to expand their food production, creating 50 new jobs in the process.”
