A North Yorkshire animal feed maker is to build a new £12 million production facility after securing unanimous approval from the Hambleton District Council planning committee.

The new 23,000 sq. ft mill will be constructed at Dalton New Bridge, the next phase of the Dalton Industrial Estate in North Yorkshire.

The facility has been designed to be as energy efficient as possible and, according to I’Anson Brothers, will be one of the most technologically advanced feed mills in Europe.

The increased production capacity will complement the firm’s existing plant at Masham and enable it to meet growing demand from existing customers, secure new orders, expand its export operations and continue to be a major supplier to the agriculture sector.

“Over the next few weeks our project team will liaise with council planners as we make our preparations to move onto the site and begin the initial works,” said Chairman and Managing Director Chris I’Anson.

Construction of the mill itself is expected to begin in the autumn and last for 18 months. Completion and commissioning is scheduled for early 2022.
