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.
