Fletchers on a roll with new £7m production facility

Fletchers Group of Bakeries has opened a brand-new £7m production facility at its Sheffield operation, following a multimillion-pound land-sale to Sainsbury's.

The new facility, which will supply to retail and foodservice customers, was opened by Gordon Maclean, 65, a recently retired Fletchers employee of 49 years, alongside the Rt Hon David Blunkett, MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough.

Blunkett said: "I am very proud to join Gordon in opening the new facility to commemorate his 49 years' service. I also hope that this state-of-the-art development can be seen as a sign of further economic recovery and jobs security for the Hillsborough area and the wider city region."

Clegg Food Projects, which provides building and consultancy solutions for major food operations all over the country, was awarded the contract to engineer and install the Stamford facility.
