New jobs on the horizon as packaging firm takes over Peterlee warehouse

A print and packaging firm is set to create new jobs after rapid growth.

The Encore Group wants staff after seeing packaging division turnover more than treble since 2021.

The success has fuelled major expansion plans, which include the takeover of a 103,000sq ft unit on the site of Walkers’ former distribution centre, in Peterlee, east Durham.

The transaction is part of a major multi-million-pound investment the firm hopes will help drive further growth, with bosses expecting £54 million turnover in the current financial year.

Craig Allen, group sales director, said: “We are thrilled with the new site.

“The last few years have been incredible across the business, and meant we ran short of space, so this site will initially serve as a much-needed storage solution for both raw materials and finished products.

“However, that will free up space at our main site, which will mean more manufacturing capacity and more new jobs created for the local community over the next few years.”
