Jobs saved as company relocates to Bradley Fold

Press Release   •   Jul 30, 2013 15:30 BST

Valley Equestrian is the latest company to set up premises at Bradley Fold Trading Estate in Radcliffe.

The company specialises in the recycling of carpets, which are shredded and re-used in re-inforcing galloping and trotting strips for racehorse training. The company has relocated to Bradley Fold following a fire at its former premises in Bolton.

Councillor Tony Isherwood, cabinet member for environment, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Valley Equestrian to Bradley Fold and Bury. The council’s proactive approach to business has resulted in company being able to save six jobs. With a strong relationship developing we are already in discussion about future expansion plans.”

Mark Jackson, general manager at Valley Equestrian, said: “We are grateful to Bury Council for the speed in which they accommodated our needs following the fire. Their willingness and ability to quickly find us suitable premises ultimately saved the company from a potentially large loss to our business and those businesses that rely on our product.”

Bradley Fold, owned by Bury Council, has recently had investment of more than £100,000 to upgrade the power supply and electricity sub-station, and further improvements are on the way.

Bradley Fold is in a great location, on the north side of Manchester and next to Bury and Bolton and a large manufacturing and engineering network.

Businesses who are interested in what Bradley Fold has to offer are asked to call 0161 253 5995 or email property@bury.gov.uk.
