THE FUTURE of a meat processing plant, which employs 100 people in South Kirkby, has been secured after its owners struck a new deal.
Owners of Yorkshire Premier Meats, which is based on Langthwaite Grange Industrial Estate, ANM Group, completed a management buy out - which has seen a new management team buy the business and secure the future of the staff.
The team of Jim Jaffray, managing director of the ANM Group Meat Division, and finance director Keith McCall officially took over on Saturday (January 5).
The Express reported in July how the plant had been put up for sale and staff were worried about the security of their jobs.
But a statement issued by the ANM Group confirmed that the deal had been completed.
