Spa Water factory looks to expand

HARROGATE Spa Water is looking to build an extension to its warehouse at Harlow Moor Road.

It says the expansion to the northwest of the light industrial site would ultimately create 10 new jobs.

The company, which employs 35 people full-time and is one of the top 10 bottled water brands in the UK, also wants to erect a canopy over its loading bay.

Its factory currently covers 16,150ft sq. The new covered area would be 1,709m sq, with a canopy at the rear over a further 635m sq.

In its statement, the company said: “Due to our limited storage space, our business model is under pressure and becoming increasingly flawed.”

It bottled over 57 million units in 2010.
