New business set to open doors in Darlington
THE DOORS are set to open on a new business in Darlington as technical mouldings company, Thysis, completes its expansion move to the town. Supported by Darlington Borough Council’s Business Support team, the Darlington venture will see the creation of around 50 new jobs for the town.
Responding to news that Thysis was keen to expand in the area, the Business Support team worked with them to find suitable premises and has helped introduce them to partner organisations able to help with the move and potential future expansion plans.
Based in York, the thermoplastics business has signed a ten year lease on the former EE data centre site on Yarm Road Industrial Estate. The move places them closer to one of their key customers and offers good access to the key transport links of the A1 (M), A66 and A19.
Terry Goodwin, managing director at Thysis, said:
“This is a really exciting time for us and we are delighted with the support we have had from the council’s business support team.
“The practical help we have had from the council’s business team has proved invaluable. The team has used their local knowledge and connections to help with signage and building alterations as well as assisting with specialist recruitment to make sure we are fully operational when the doors open.”
Councillor Chris McEwan, Darlington Borough Council’s Deputy Leader and cabinet member for Economy and Regeneration, said:
“I am delighted to welcome Thysis to the town and pleased that they have been well supported by our business team. The excellent transport links and local business support have proved key to Thysis making their decision to expand here.
“This news ties in well with our plans for Darlington as a place to do business as the new Ingenium Parc takes shape close by with the potential to create a further 2,000 jobs for the borough.”
