James Latham creates 50 new jobs

Timber retailer James Latham is opening a new operation in Leeds and creating 50 jobs.

The move will see the firm take a 66,000 sq ft of space at Capitol Park and is expected to be fully operational next spring.

James Latham director Andrew Wright explained: “Having out-grown our existing Ossett site, the new James Latham Leeds facility at Junction 28 of the M62 will provide the modern infrastructure required to continue the successful development of the business across the region.”

The decision by James Latham to open on Capitol Park means it has achieved its target of attracting 1,500 jobs to the site next to the M62.

Alex Munro, partner with global property consultancy Knight Frank in Leeds, said: “Capitol Park Leeds is a tremendous success story and recent lettings and deals have taken it to the 1,500 jobs target for Phase One.

"It is one of the brightest stars of the Yorkshire out-of-town business park market and continues to attract first-class tenants.”

Martin Croxen, the chief executive of developers Sterling Capitol, said: “As a company, we are extremely proud of what we have achieved here.

"Job creation is at the heart of our plans at Capitol Park and we are delighted that there are now 1,500 people already employed on site at companies as diverse as Carcraft, Hermes, dePuy, de Vere Village Hotels, Real Radio, the NHS and the Henderson Insurance Group."
