Jaymac Pallet Services delivers jobs at new Darlington warehouse
December 6, 2023
A pallets firm is creating jobs in a £2 million-plus warehouse expansion.
Jaymac Pallet Services is building a new base on Darlington’s Faverdale Industrial Estate.
Officials say the move will deliver around 30 jobs.
The family-run business, founded in 1997, has been supported by a £2.2 million package from investment fund Develop North – which is managed by Newcastle’s Tier One Capital – to develop the 3.7-acre site.
Jay Macari, Jaymac Pallet Services’ managing director, said: “The build represents the next step in our strategy to become the most sustainable pallet supplier in the North of England.
“The site moves us closer to our key customer base, and the extra space allows us to extend our wider solutions offering, enabling us to store, sort and unpack goods.
“We appreciate the support offered from Tier One Capital and Develop North, enabling our business to grow and, in turn, support the local community.”
Brendan O’Grady, Tier One Capital fund manager, added: “We’re delighted to be supporting Jaymac Pallets’ North East expansion.
“The management team has ambitious plans to grow the business, delivering local jobs and encouraging skills development through its apprenticeship schemes, alongside its sustainability activities, which offer its clients waste solutions through recover, repair, re-use and recycling services.”
