Two businesses boost jobs in Wrexham

Wrexham in North Wales has been boosted by the promise of 350 new jobs from two employers.

The BBC reports Dubai-based Hotpack Packaging is to create 250 jobs through the opening of its new European headquarters in the town within the next three to five years, while life sciences firm Ipsen is recruiting an additional 100 people this year by expanding its facility in an investment worth £22m.

The BBC adds the Hotpack deal includes a £1.5m loan from the newly-opened Development Bank of Wales in Wrexham, making it the first firm in the region to benefit from the Wales flexible investment fund.
