A £1 million investment has been made and seven new jobs created in Elland.

Bond It - which makes sealants, adhesives, grouts and other building chemicals - has unveiled a new warehouse at its site on Lowfields Business Park.

The company say the new warehouse will help it meet an increasing demand for its products and be instrumental in driving further growth.

Craig Whittaker, MP for the Calder Valley, officially opened the warehouse at a ceremony attended by Bond It employees, members of the Huddersfield Giants - who will be officially sponsored by Bond It from next season -and representatives from Claude Hellowell, one of Bond It’s distribution partners.

David Moore, managing director at Bond It, said: “We’re delighted to be opening a new warehouse as it is a direct reflection of our ongoing success in a difficult economic climate.

“We attribute our continued expansion, which includes on average double digit growth every year for the last decade, to a combination of great products, exceptional service and a genuine commitment to sound and honest business practices.

“The investment has not only created seven new jobs but has also helped secure the future of our existing 53 employees. As such, it’s not only good news for us as a business, but for the local community as a whole.”

Mr Whittaker said: “I am delighted to have opened the new Bond It warehouse. The company is a major employer for the surrounding area and also an important part of the local economy.

“To see the business prospering and continuing to set a high standard for other in its industry is fantastic.

“I’d like to congratulate the Bond It team for their success so far and wish them all the best for the future.”

Measuring over 13,700 square feet, the firm say the new facility will also help them company explore new opportunities for international trade. The business’s export markets already include South Africa, and South Korea.
