Work is due to start on the project within the next few weeks, with the new premises scheduled to open in early 2019. It will include custom designed production areas, modern offices and staff facilities.

The existing 55,000sqft Rhino Products factory in Deeside Industrial Park, which is located seven miles from the new site, will remain open – taking the group’s total floor space to over 175,000sqft.

The new site will support continued product and service development for Rhino customers in UK, Europe and growing export markets.

MD Steve Egerton explained: “The next few years are looking extremely positive for the business. With five companies in the group and staff levels at a record high of 125 people across all divisions, we are moving from strength to strength by supporting our customers with sector-leading products and support.

“Our customers recognise Rhino as industry leaders because of the quality and passion of our team and it is through our shared belief and determination that we will make the opening of our new factory another rousing Rhino success.”
