TAMNAMORE firm Capper Trading has announced its plan to create a new £15 million agri-development hub on its current site.
The firm, which is involved in three primary operations – fuel sales, animal feed production and haulage, says the move will create 40 new jobs in the area.
It will also boost the local economy to the tune of more than £11 million.
Managing Director, Phillip Hill said, “Capper has been the steward of the land of Tamnamore for more than 40 years. We hope to build on the company’s great history by developing a promising future for our company and for the local area. More than 500 agri-businesses across the UK and Ireland rely on our products every day.
“In the next 5 to 10 years our ambition is to grow our transport and logistic capacity year on year, both locally and internationally.”
Capper Trading have now lodged their plans with Mid-Ulster District Council.
