KP Snacks Inaugurates New Pellet Production Facility
KP Snacks recently opened a new pellet production facility in Teesside in North East England – an expansion to an existing compound. According to the company, the plant is the largest of KP Snacks’ manufacturing sites. It employs 750 people and is the result of a GBP6m investment.
The pallets manufactured on two lines in the new facility will be used to make Pom-Bear and Hula Hoops Puft products.
“The opening of our new facility comes at a great time as Teesside is celebrating 50 years of production in 2019. We are passionate about employing local people and we have generations of families here at the site. I’m proud to be leading KP Teesside during this exciting time of investment and growth,” said Lee Appleby, Factory General Manager.
To mark the occasion, Tees Valley Major Ben Houchen opened the new 2300 sqm extension.
