Centerprise hires 300 South Walians

New factory

Centerprise, the Basingstoke-based PC contract manufacturer, is kitting out a new factory-cum-warehouse in South Wales, and is hiring almost 300 new staff. The expansion is part-financed by grant-aid from the Welsh Assembly Government, but Centerprise is committing at least £11.5m of its own dosh into the plant, sited in Caerphilly.

The first new hires will start coming on board in early summer, Centerprise says. The PC builder claims an annual turnover of "£100m-plus". You can find some more details on the Welsh investment here. ®
