Invopak gains approval for Hyde warehouse

Chloé Vaughan

P4 Planning has secured planning permission for an 18,000 ft warehouse for packaging company Invopak in Hyde.

The modular warehouse is to be supplied by HTS, with project management by Martin Wills Partnership.

It follows the £1.9m acquisition of Frederick House and adjacent land at the beginning of July. The land for the proposed warehouse is currently used as a yard and car parking for employees.

The additional storage space will allow Invopak to bring the currently vacant unit into active use while meeting its growing business requirements.

This scheme is part of a wider series of improvements to Invopak’s site, which totals an overall £1.5m investment.

Invopak has a workforce of 85 and operates from 4 branches throughout the UK. Its headquarters are 100 metres away from the approved site at Hyde Point.

Charlotte Fowler, associate at P4 Planning, said: “This is a great result and a significant investment being made by Invopak, demonstrating their long-term commitment to the area, their workforce and ambitions for the future.”
