New port for Newport Industries

[ January 12, 2016   //   ]

Newport Industries is investing £7m in a new bulk handling facility at Liverpool’s Canada Branch Dock to handle imports of dry bulk chemicals to the glass, adhesive, detergents, chemicals and feed industries. Newport Industries has been a customer at Peel Ports’ Runcorn Docks site since 2009 and, with continued operations at its existing site will create an all water ‘highway’ via the Manchester Ship Canal. Work on the first phase of construction will begin in February.
Opening of Peel Ports’ £300m deep water container terminal Liverpool2 later this year will open future opportunities to tap into far eastern markets, the company adds.
