Newport concrete factory plan gets the go-ahead
Mar, 12 2012
(UK) -- A factory which will make concrete and stone products will be built in Newport, councillors agreed.
Marshalls Mono Ltd, won planning consent to demolish its existing plant at Eastern Dry Dock, Corporation Road, Lliswerry, to make way for a new factory double the size.
Once complete the scheme, which includes a 5,460 sq m plant, offices and a 87 space car park, will make concrete paving slabs and kerbs.
It would also manufacture ‘Pennant’ natural stone products, which are currently made at its other UK sites and transported to Newport for distribution.
The expansion is expected to bring new jobs, but it is unknown how many.
