An animal feed manufacturer has acquired a site at a North Yorkshire industrial development for its new ‘state-of-the-art’ facility.
Masham-based firm I’Anson Brothers has purchased the site at Dalton New Bridge (DNB) for its planned 23,000 sq ft feed mill.
Founded in 1900 by Christopher I’Anson, the firm specialises in the production of micronized feeds, specialty rations and horse feeds.
I’Anson’s headquarters will remain in Masham, while the new facility at Dalton will focus on the production of bulk farm feeds, creating up to 20 new jobs in addition to the 90 strong existing workforce.
I’Anson Brothers managing director Chris I’Anson, great grandson of founder Christopher, commented: “This is a very significant investment for our company and is the major part of our strategy to secure 50-year further growth for the longer term sustainability of our business and the future generations of our employees, customers and family.” Lindsay Ross, spokesman for DNB, added: “I’Anson is a long established and reputable North Yorkshire business and we are very pleased to see their move to Dalton New Bridge. The new mill will be a local landmark.”
