Building new jobs

A £500,000 expansion of a Northumberland company supported by the North East's regional development agency is set to create 20 new jobs in the area. Modern Art Stone, which manufactures artificial stone for housebuilders and builder's merchants (above), is relocating from Cambois to Blyth to expand its production. The move is being supported by One NorthEast, which is providing a Regional Selective Assistance grant of £125,000, which will enable the company to buy the land on which to build a new 3,995 sq meter factory.
