“This very welcome announcement from BLK BOX is fantastic news for our local economy and it is great to see a new company coming to our Borough and giving our employment opportunities a significant boost. Having met with them when they were developing their expansion plans I know they are ambitious and I wish them every success. I am confident this new facility will help bring their ambitious growth plans to fruition.” 

 
Gregory Bradley, Managing Director for BLK BOX commented,

“We met with the Mayor, Chief Executive and Councillors of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council recently about moving to the Borough and everyone was very supportive which made the decision much easier. This new location will provide a larger space for us to continue to grow and expand both our capacity and our workforce. It will also enable us to create the kind of distribution centre we need to fill our growing consumer sales in the UK, Europe and further afield. We are very excited about the move to Newtownabbey and what the future holds for BLK BOX.”
