Galliford Try’s Building North East and Yorkshire business has been selected to construct a new £65m manufacturing facility for JDR Cable Systems, at Blyth, Northumberland in UK.

The 46,000m2 facility is expected to help JDR widen its product portfolio, adding high voltage export and long-length array cables to its current capacity and product capabilities.

The scheme marks an important investment in the North East on the site of the earlier Blyth power station.

This contract builds on Galliford Try’s record of developing manufacturing facilities within the region, for companies Rolls Royce and Quorn.

Galliford Try chief executive Bill Hocking said: “We are delighted to be part of this fantastic project, which adds to our excellent portfolio of work in the North East, and also helps the UK towards energy security and its net zero carbon targets. We look forward to working with JDR to provide them with a first-class facility that assists them in achieving their ambitions.”

JDR chief strategy and compliance officer James Young commented: “The appointment of Galliford Try and the start of construction represents a major milestone in the realisation of our new high-voltage subsea cable manufacturing facility. JDR selected Galliford Try for their technical expertise, attention to detail, strong local supply-chain and their collaborative solutions.
