Worksop firm MBA Polymers has provided another boost to the local job market after announcing new investment for this year.
Following new financial injection from its investors, the company will create around 15 new jobs by adding an additional shift to operations at its Sandy Lane plant.
This expansion will happen in the late spring and early summer.
MBA is the world-leading multinational plastics recycling company which currently employs around 110 people at its Worksop base.
The new investment will allow MBA to expand its operations in Worksop to drive growth and further improve production efficiency.
Chief executive Nigel Hunton commented, “This expansion is dependent on the coming on-stream of EMR’s new plant at Oldbury in Birmingham.”
“This is the largest recycling plant in the UK and is currently undergoing start–up commissioning.”
“In the future, MBA will receive an increased level of shredded plastic waste from cars from this plant which provides the raw material for MBA’s recycled plastic end product.”
“We are delighted that we will be adding jobs in this way and 2014 is looking very positive for MBA Polymers and Worksop.”
Recruitment will start in late April with the additional shift being introduced at the same time.
