More Jobs Created in Cwmbran Regeneration
Cwmbran is welcoming a new supermarket, opening later this month, creating 350 new jobs in the town.
The new Morrisonâ€™s consists of a 37,000 sq ft store, a petrol station, and there will be an in-store cafÃ© and a car park for nearly 500 cars.
Up to 150 full-time jobs have been created alongside over 200 part time jobs. Morrisonâ€™s will be the third large supermarket in the town.
The supermarket is one part of a large regeneration project in Cwmbran which began in 2010 and is due for completion in 2014. Future plans for the site include a hotel, pub and offices. The scheme is supported by the Welsh Government through the Single Investment Fund.
More than 100 further jobs are expected to be created over the next five years as part of a Â£36 million investment into the brake industry at Meritorâ€™s Cwmbran plant. Planning permission was also given for Meritor, to refurbish and extend part of its factory.
The Cwmbran factory, which employs over 400 people already, provides the commercial and industrial vehicle market and exports 90% of its products.January 17, 2013 at 1:14 pm #35702
This is great news for this area. I know people around here that are thrilled with this news. Some people say “oh look, another supermarket” but that isnt the point, we need jobs, it doesnt matter what the jobs are so long as the wages are beneficial to the people in the jobs. Part time is great for parents so this is another good thing
