Clowes Developments hand over £8m facility to Terinex Flexibles Ltd

Clowes Developments, together with lead contractor Roe Developments, have achieved practical completion at plot 10A, a 46,000 sq ft unit for Terinex Flexibles Ltd, an OGM Holdings Group company at Dove Valley Park, Foston.

Following an extensive fit out period, the new £8m facility will become the new home of Terinex Flexibles, a supplier of printed flexible packaging films and solutions used within the food, pet food and medical packaging industries.

The premises features production, warehousing and research and development facilities. The building also includes advanced sustainable energy systems to recover heat for re-use, and solar panels for generating power to operate the factory. OGM Holdings were keen from the outset to create one of the most sustainable, low carbon footprint, flexible packaging factories in the UK.

Marc Freeman, Director at Clowes Developments (UK) Ltd, added: “Clowes Developments are delighted to hand the building over to Terinex Flexibles who are now pressing on with their bespoke fit out. The group are currently constructing a further 270,000 sq ft across Dove Valley Park which will enhance the existing offering for perspective occupants.

“Dove Valley Park is a fantastic location for logistical enterprises, benefiting from easy access to the A50. The site continues to grow in popularity with occupiers creating valuable employment opportunities in South Derbyshire.”

Dove Valley Park Ltd, a subsidiary of Clowes Developments, has been developing the business park for a number of years and is already home to occupiers including Top Hat, JCB, Müller, Futaba Ltd and GXO.

Paul Wightman, Group Managing Director of the OGM Group, said: “Our new location for Terinex Flexibles will facilitate the further growth of our business and we are looking forward to adding to our team in South Derbyshire.

“The new site provides more than double the size of our existing factory and will accommodate new equipment, our expanding team and increased R&D capabilities to benefit our food, petfood and medical packaging customers. Reducing the environmental impact of industry in the UK is both a moral obligation and a business necessity.

“Our aspiration was to build the UK’s best flexible packaging factory with the lowest environmental footprint producing very high quality products, it’s great to see our vision come to life and we look forward to moving in once the fit out process is complete.”
