DOZENS of jobs will be created when a recycling company makes a multi-million pound move to the area.

Winsford Industrial Estate will soon be home to 99P Recycling, a waste management firm.

In total, £7 million has been invested in the move, which will create 30 new jobs.

Paul Nolan, director at Nolan Redshaw, who advised 99P, said: “99P has committed to a new state-of-the-art low density polyethylene film recycling plant in Winsford to enable large quantities to be recycled in the U.K. and reused.

“Winsford Industrial Estate is the UK's first Green Business Park and is therefore the perfect home for an environmentally conscious business, such as 99p.”

99P Recycling has been trading in the UK for the last 10 years.

It is described as an “Ecological Service Platform” for plastics recycling and exporting from the UK to the Far East.

Acting on behalf of investment companies Pitalia and Harlex, Legat Owen and JLL signed 99P Recyling to a 10-year-lease at a newly refurbished 43,000sqft unit on a site of four acres at Winsford Industrial Estate.

Pitalia purchased three units, comprising a total 250,000sqft, in December 2021 from Henkel UK Operations.

Since then it has undertaken a refurbishment of two of the unoccupied units.

Unit three, measuring 80,000sqft, was leased back to Henkel on a five-year term and so this latest deal means there is just one unit, 60,634sqft in size, remaining.

Matt Pochin, director at Legat Owen, said: “Winsford Industrial Estate is attracting major manufacturers and distribution businesses that see Winsford as an excellent alternative to more costly locations.

“The low density site and sizeable yard has attracted occupiers, like 99P, who are struggling to find good external areas. We have also had a high level of interest in the last remaining unit, which is reflecting the continued pressure on stock levels for quality industrial space.”
