The Belfast Telegraph is reporting that plastics manufacturer Brett Martin, located in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, is planning a £6m factory expansion.
According to the newspaper report, the development will include expansion of the main Brett Martin facility, with related storage and distribution buildings.
The company has teamed up with landowner Ballinamallard Developments for the project.
A pre-application notice for planning related to this project has been filed with Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.
The move comes after the plastics company was granted planning permission for a separate £2m project which will see 46,000 sq ft added to the existing 319,000 sq ft floorspace.
Details of the new proposal will be released at a public consultation, due to take place at the Chimney Corner Hotel, Newtownabbey, on 14 August.
The Brett Martin site in Newtownabbey specialises in plastics conversion, with key manufacturing expertise covering thermoplastic extrusion and injection moulding operations producing plastic sheet and pipe extrusions.
In addition to the Co. Antrim plant, Brett Martin has a series of production plants in Great Britain, including Coventry, West Midlands, Staveley, Derbyshire, and Burscough, Lancashire. The company also has distribution hubs in Luton, Bedfordshire and Cumbernauld, Lanarkshire.
