WHEN Little Paxton-based gas controls manufacturer Black Teknigas Limited decided it needed a new, purpose-built factory for its growing activities, it decided to keep the development local.
The company has engaged Huntingdon-based Artisan plc - one of the few listed companies registered in the district - to build it at Colmworth Business Park in St Neots.
Black Teknigas first moved to Little Paxton, on the Bydand Lane industrial estate, in 1989 as a fledgling management buy-out company employing fewer than 20 people. The £5.5million-a-year company, which was acquired last August by the American controls manufacturer Watts Industries, now has a workforce of 55.
The new 36,000-square-foot factory that will provide manufacturing, warehousing and office space will be built to Black's design, and is expected to be handed over in January next year.
