Kitchen furniture manufacturer Omega has announced a £7.5million investment and expansion plan for its South Yorkshire plant. It will increase production capacity to over £125m over two years.
The Doncaster-based company will open an 80,000sqft manufacturing and warehouse facility, taking the single site operation to a total of 400,000sq ft.
