EnCon Construction Ltd is gearing up to transform underutilised land in Rhymney, near Tredegar, into high quality, light industrial factory units as part of the investment in infrastructure in the south east Wales region.

The site, which currently hosts a number of existing units, will welcome two new buildings of 10 individual units along with the associated site infrastructure and landscaping.

The enhancements were welcomed by local residents when an exhibition outlining the proposals was hosted in Rhymney Library earlier this year. The site will present a fantastic opportunity for the local and wider community as it is set to generate employment opportunities.

Caerphilly County Borough Council cabinet member responsible for economic development Cllr Sean Morgan said: “I am pleased that this project is moving at pace and the contractors EnCon Construction Ltd will move on to the site as early as January 2020. It is thanks to continued partnership working with our colleagues in WEFO that we are able to transform this unused parcel of land to expand an existing estate to boost the local economy."

Antonia John, business development and CSR manager at EnCon Construction, said: “As a Welsh construction and civil engineering company we are very supportive of investment within local communities within Wales.

"We see this project as a fantastic opportunity for EnCon Construction to be part of scheme that not only enhances the local economy, but also provides much needed employment opportunities for the local community of Rhymney and the surrounding wider community.”

This project has been made possible with funding from Caerphilly County Borough Council and the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
