Wright's Flour Millers in Enfield has bucked the recession by carrying out a major expansion of its business.

Property advisor Derrick Wade Waters (DWW) acted for the business in acquiring a new site at Delta Park Industrial Estate.

The firm has been retained to oversee the design and project management of the construction of a new 50,000sq ft facility.

The building represents the largest single investment in the company’s 145-year history and will house mixing and packing equipment that will be used to manufacture Wright’s range of bread and cake mixes.   

Wright’s managing director, David Wright said, “I am delighted that we have been able to secure this property for development. In order to continue growing our business, we had to look outside of our existing facilities and with the help of DWW the land was secured just a mile from the mill and most importantly in Enfield where flour has been manufactured since 1087."

The firm’s founder George Reynolds Wright started the business at Ponders End Mills more than 140 years ago.
