The new 55,000 sq ft building is said to house one of Europe’s most advanced carton manufacturing environments providing flexible, high-speed productivity.

Mrs Foster said:

“It will allow Delta to further increase export sales and continue to offer an excellent service to its clients, which include global giants McDonald’s, KFC, Greiner Packaging and Kelloggs. It will position Delta as one of the best equipped suppliers in the industry.”

Delta Packaging Chairman, Terry Cross, added:

“With this new facility on line we can grow sales across a number of existing customer accounts as well as attract prospective business at home and abroad. It is part of our growth strategy, which also includes opening a 100,000 sq ft production plant in Poland next year.”

Delta announced plans earlier this year to take on 100 new workers by 2017 and has already recruited 76 new staff, taking the number on its books to around 250.
