Pets Choice has submitted a planning application for a new warehouse, industrial unit and shop at their Lower Philips Road base on the Whitebirk Industrial Estate.
The proposed expansion will allow the company to further enhance its manufacturing capabilities in the region and anticipates the creation of 60 new jobs.
This application seeks planning permission for a new 120,000 square foot warehouse with three-storey offices in addition to a new access road.
It will also aim to support the group’s ambitions to be more sustainable, reducing transport of their products and subsequently reducing their carbon dioxide emissions, whilst also providing new full-time jobs within the local area.
Tony Raeburn, CEO of Pets Choice, said: “Only two years ago we opened our 65,000 sq ft new start of the art production facilities in Blackburn, the company has continued to grow substantially so we are pleased to have submitted this planning application to build additional new facilities on the Whitebirk Industrial Estate.
“This expansion will allow us to expand our manufacturing capabilities in the UK and the opportunity to create more jobs in Blackburn.”
