AkzoNobel has confirmed that the construction of a GBP 100 million (GBP 1 = EUR 1.18) manufacturing facility in Ashington/UK is set to go ahead. The factory received planning permission from Northumberland County Council, and represents one of the biggest manufacturing investments in the region in recent years. It is trebling the paint producer’s current North East manufacturing capacity. The new site will serve as the new home to the company’s UK decorative paints manufacturing operations, currently based in Slough. Slough will remain the company's headquarters for UK decorative paints marketing, research and development. The paint producer will also close its current Prudhoe site. The company already started putting measures in place to ensure that the appropriate support and development is available to employees who want to move to the new site.  The paint producer said staff in Slough and Prudhoe could relocate to the new site and would be given training and development opportunities. Building is due to begin later this year and the factory expected to open in late 2014, when its Prudhoe site will close.
