A multi million pound investment in a new manufacturing facility and associated aerospace and aeronautic jobs is being planned by specialist manufacturer Sylatech in Pickering.
Plans for a new £4 million 55,000sqft production facility and further 130,000sqft of commercial floor space have been submitted to Ryedale District Council by national property consultant Carter Jonas on behalf of the company.
Currently based at Kirbymoorside, Sylatech, is a market leader in the design and manufacture of components for aerospace, satellite and defensive systems.
Sylatech plans to relocate from its existing outdated premises to a larger site which will form part of a technology hub designed to attract like-minded businesses to locate to this part of rural Ryedale.
The proposals for the 6.6 hectare site, adjacent to the Thornton Road Industrial Estate on the eastern outskirts of Pickering, have been developed in close conjunction with officers at Ryedale District Council as part of its drive to secure and develop employment opportunities in the area.
“I am particularly pleased that Sylatech has chosen Ryedale as the best place for their ambitious growth plans.“They are a key local employer who have a long-standing connection to Ryedale and they are demonstrating their confidence in the area as a place to expand their business.
“Ryedale District Council’s economy team has worked closely with Sylatech to ensure the relocation will provide new employment space that will attract other companies to the business park and this can only be good for our district”.
