Plans have been submitted to Torfaen Council for Crane Process Flow Technologies (Crane) to move to a new site in Cwmbran.
The application explains that developers Cedar Cwmbran Ltd want to redevelop the empty vacant brownfield site next door to Crane’s current site on Grange Road- and build a 9,770 sq metre factory, offices and a car park.
Documents say that the new factory would: “…secure the future of presence in the town together with 170 jobs. The site comprises brownfield industrial land at Grange Road, Cwmbran.”
The employer has been based at its current site since 1934. The planning statement (prepared in November 2020) says: “The site is now ageing and no longer appropriate for a modern manufacturing facility, nor does it provide acceptable working conditions for its circa 170 employees. The proposed development will be a world-class manufacturing facility of modern design incorporating office areas, yard and parking for colleagues.”
