 Thursday, November 25, 2021

James Jones & Sons is engaged in increase its facilities at its Hetton site with an approval for a 55000 square measure site renovation.

It is expected that following this investment their business will grow as well as James Jones & Sons will redevelop its premises into a green facility and there will be an installation of a biomass boiler.

Over the years, James Jones & Sons (Pallets and Packaging) has focused on offering services in Building Design Northern (BDN), a Sunderland based architectural, structural and civil engineering firm, to design the plans for its new facility, and support development of fully sustainable supply chain service.

It is expected that the new space will support the pallet-making process and will also allow the firm to install a new biomass boiler, which will be fuelled by James Jones’s own recycled timber, enhancing the firm’s environmental credentials, reducing carbon emissions and further strengthening the company’s contribution to a circular supply chain.

Peter McKenzie, Managing Director of James Jones & Sons Pallets and Packaging division said: “We are delighted to receive planning permission for this development. Our business is fully committed to creating a sustainable supply chain and takes every step to ensure that any new developments carefully consider local wildlife and habitats, residents and the environment. This development will provide additional employment opportunities for local residents whilst ensuring that the site and activities carried out thereon have little to no impact upon the environment”

BDN was engaged by the firm to develop the commercial scheme taking the project forward though planning to completion on site.

Managing Director of BDN, Richard Marsden, said: “We’re pleased to have been able to support Peter and the James Jones team in shaping plans for a new production facility that will aide their expansion as well as making them a more energy efficient business, which will also help keep energy costs down.

Work will now begin on the new facility, which is expected to be completed in 2022.
