24 February 2020

Swizzels Matlow, maker of the nation’s most romantic sweets, Love Hearts, is expanding its manufacturing facility with a new site in Cheshire.

The sweet manufacturer has exchanged contracts with logistics developer Tritax Symmetry for the delivery of a new 158,000 sq ft manufacturing facility at MA6NITUDE in Middlewich, Cheshire.

This forms the first phase of a total development of up to 460,000 sq ft.

The new facility for Swizzels will be an expansion of the confectioner’s current manufacturing capability and involves a significant additional investment in new plant and machinery.

Jeremy Dee, managing director at Swizzels said: “We are excited to embark upon this development to further support the growth of our business. We look forward to working with Tritax Symmetry at Ma6nitude in the delivery of what we are confident will be a first-rate manufacturing facility.”

David Nuttall, development director at Tritax Symmetry, said: “Bringing a well-respected and long-established company to Ma6nitude is a huge coup for both the scheme and the region.

“Swizzels’ decision to choose Ma6nitide as the location for such a significant investment in growing their business emphasises the quality of the site and their confidence in our ability to deliver this new manufacturing facility. This is also excellent news for Middlewich too, bringing a range of good quality jobs to the area.”

He added: “With the deal now signed, we are aiming to submit the planning application imminently.”
