Italian self adhesive materials manufacturer Ritrama has announced plans to move its UK operation from Eccles to Tameside.
The company, which has its global headquarters in Milan, Italy, will soon leave its UK base in Eccles to take over a 115,000 square foot modern building at Tameside Park on Fifth Avenue, Dukinfield. It will be fitted with equipment able to satisfy the most demanding technical requirements, the company says. Ritrama, which will be bringing 70 jobs with it, has expansion plans in place to create training and employment opportunities for Tameside residents.
John Taylor, deputy leader of Tameside Council, comments: “Ritrama is the latest high-profile company to establish a presence in Tameside which is rapidly making a name for itself as a business-friendly location. The council has helped Ritrama throughout the process, identifying suitable premises and supporting them with their relocation plans. We look forward to the creation of lots of jobs over the coming years.”
Mark Evans, managing director of Ritrama UK, adds, “We are delighted to be moving to Dukinfield. We hope to bring new jobs, establish apprenticeships, and grow the company for both the benefit of Ritrama and the borough of Tameside.”
