FIFTY new jobs will be created in Ellesmere Port as part of the largest industrial letting deal in the North West this year.
Prowell, a corrugated cardboard manufacturer, is to run its UK distribution hub from Ellesmere Port Logistics Centre, an enormous 210,000 sq ft facility located on the newly-created Pioneer Business Park.
The company, a full subsidiary of Progroup AG, based in Offenbach, Germany, selected the Port for its first UK base after considering a range of sites in Cheshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands. The company already operates from nine other locations across Europe.
