Owen Smith welcomes new jobs at Treforest Glass

Treforest Glass is expanding and relocating to larger premises with Welsh Government support that will create and safeguard 25 jobs.

The local business, which currently employs more than 40 people, is moving to a site in Tonyrefail which is significantly larger than its current base on Pontypridd’s Upper Boat Business Park.

The £1.3m investment, which includes the purchase and fit of the premises and new equipment, is supported by £80,000 from the Welsh Government’s Growth & Prosperity Fund, a non-repayable grant fund to support Welsh SMEs to grow and increase employment. It will create ten new jobs and safeguard a further 15.

Commenting on the announcement, Labour MP for Pontypridd, Owen Smith, said:

“This is great news for a superb local company and its employees.

“Thanks to £1.3 million investment from the Welsh Labour Government Treforest Glass will be able to move to a new site in Tonyrefail allowing them to expand their operation and create new jobs.

“This comes just days after the Welsh Government’s announcement of new jobs for Pontypridd and reconfirms Welsh Labour’s commitment to improving our local economy.”
