Company's move to Brierely Hill could create more jobs
5:00pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
MORE jobs could be created as a result of a local manufacturer relocating to Brierley Hill.
Indentec, a manufacturer of hardness testers, has set up shop at Hurst Business Park, having previously been based in Lye.
The company, which belongs to the Zwick Roell Group, began the move in June, but the officially opening took place on Thursday (October 3) when the German CEO, Dr Jan Stefan Roell flew in to do the honours.
Managing director, John Pillar, said the company decided to move to Brierley Hill as it provided a “better, bigger and more modern facility”.
He said: “It is suitable for bringing customers in for demonstrations, training courses and acceptance visits, it give a much better and more professional image.
“Also, we rented property in Lye, we now own the building and land in Brierley Hill.”
Mr Pillar said the company currently employs 20 people but hoped that would increase: “Our new, hi-tech demonstration centre will help to boost interest, lead to more enquiries, thus more order entry, which will lead to more local employment.”
