HARIBO appoints firm to deliver Castleford factory expansion

HARIBO UK has recently received planning approval for a new, purpose-built warehouse at its Castleford site. This new facility will help meet increased demand for products.

Now, HARIBO has appointed local firm Caddick Construction to deliver this expansion.

The site in Castleford first started producing HARIBO’s treats in 2015. The new warehouse facility will allow HARIBO to manage increased volumes of finished product, stock more raw materials and packaging, and will help safeguard 600 jobs across both its West Yorkshire sites.

Jon Hughes, Managing Director of HARIBO UK and Ireland, said: “Following another successful year, we’re pleased to have recently received planning approval for a new, purpose-built warehouse at our Castleford site.

“We expect to break ground and begin construction soon and are delighted to have appointed local Yorkshire construction firm Caddick Construction to support the build. For fifty years, we’ve been part of Yorkshire’s sweet-making tradition, and we continue to invest in our two sites in Pontefract and Castleford to deliver delicious treats for our consumers across the UK.

“The new warehouse will mean that we can create more moments of childlike happiness, and the investment demonstrates our commitment to Yorkshire as a centre of excellence for food manufacturing.”

Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group’s Managing Director, said: “Our appointment to HARIBO UK’s expansion plans is very exciting for Caddick as we grow our manufacturing portfolio.

“As a Yorkshire business, we’re very proud to once again be leading on a development that will boost industry and employment, making this great region home to world-leading manufacturing. We are looking forward to starting work on site and working with HARIBO UK to fulfil their expansion plans.”
