Manvers gets more jobs

AN AMERICAN engineering company is to move into a new factory space at Manvers. US-owned Thetford – a supplier of kitchen and cooking equipment – will take over an 83,000 sq ft industrial unit on the Brookfields development.

The firm will relocate around 180 staff from their current base in Sheffield to the Dearne Valley.

Tim O’Connell, business development manager at Rotherham Investment and Development Office, said Rotherham’s great location and cost-effective property solutions “are reasons why companies such as Thetford are looking to establish operations in this area.”
