BOSSES at a traffic management firm in Bury have announced relocation plans.

Melba Swintex, which has made cones, signs and barriers for 60 years, has confirmed it will be switching to a site in Stubbins later this year.

Planning permission was granted for the company to expand its Manchester Road home three years ago.

But Melba Swintex officials say their prospective new home offers them a greater opportunity to expand and Invest in Rossendale had worked to secure non-domestic rates relief.

Paul Harrison, Melba Swintex’s finance director, added: “The relocation will give Melba the increased production capacity it needs to continue to grow.

"This will result in further jobs being created for the local community."
