TYNE and Wear Development Company’s appetite for encouraging business growth is demonstrated by its long term support for one of the country’s leading brands.
Newcastle baker Greggs, which has ten regional bakeries supplying over 1,500 shops in the UK, has been able to tap into a range of services over the last ten years through Tyne and Wear Development Company’s Strategic Account Management programme.
Greggs, which recorded sales of over £600m last year, is in the final stages of developing a £16m state-of-the-art bakery at Balliol Business Park.
Nigel Oldham, supply chain director at Greggs, said: “We have a strong relationship with Tyne and Wear Development Company. Over the years the team has been very proactive in assisting us with all manner of projects and we’re very appreciative of that.
“We’re excited about the new facility and the input we received was important to the progress of our plans. Their level of service and attention to detail is impressive.”
