WORCESTER BOSCH EXPANSION WELCOMED BY LUFF

The planned relocation of local boiler and energy company Worcester Bosch to a new site by junction six of the M5 has been welcomed by local MP Peter Luff. The move would bring the company into his Mid Worcestershire constituency.

Commenting Peter said:

“The proposed move will ensure the company has a site which will allow it to continue to grow. Crucially, moving to this site not only safeguards the jobs of current employees but will also provide scope for over a thousand more. Worcester Bosch is a flourishing manufacturing business that is doing a lot to increase the nation’s energy efficiency. It has a proud local history and at any time this news would be welcome, but it is all the more so in the current economic climate.

“My only concern is that junction six will probably need to be remodelled to cope with the increase in traffic likely to be generated by the development. I will be making urgent representations to the Highways Agency to ensure that they do all they reasonably can to manage the impact on an already busy junction.

“Worcester Bosch is a much valued employer in the local area, and the new site will mean that we will retain their important manufacturing presence. At a time when businesses are struggling because of the credit crunch, I am delighted the company is going from strength to strength, and support the proposed development wholeheartedly.”
