Councillor Pat Allen (Lib-Dem Elland) has opened the new Nu-Swift factory which has been relocated as part of the Morrisons supermarket development.

The store at Briggate opens in the New Year and Morrisons agreed to relocate the fire-extinguisher firm in its proposals for the site. Coun Allen said she was delighted 70 jobs had been safeguarded with the move to a new factory. “Nu-Swift has been a major employer in Elland for more than 80 years and I hope the firm can now manage another 80 years.” Coun Allen also welcomed the road improvements the development has brought.
