Three businesses have now signed up to work at the new Horizon 120 Business, Innovation and Logistics Park off the A131 at Great Notley.

British Offsite, a subsidiary of the Weston Group, is set to create up to 80 new jobs when they create a new manufacturing and distribution centre on the site.

The company will manufacture and distribute building components for the new homes industry, including kitchen and bathroom units, as well as their UNI-System of light gauge steel wall, floor and roof panels.

The building will be an expansion of the company's existing factory facility alongside its head office at the nearby Skyline industrial estate.

It will enable British Offsite to dramatically expand the size and complexity of its operations and output.
