Cleardata’s £1.5 Million Investment in New Facility

Cleardata is investing £1.5 Million in a new facility on Hawarden Business Park, based in North Wales.  The premises will be based within the Deeside Enterprise zone and will help create new jobs with support from the Welsh Government.

Cleardata’s head office is based in the North East, where it has purpose built archive storage premises combined with a professional document scanning bureau.  The company has acquired a 1.8 acre site from the Welsh Government at Hawarden Business Park, where it is investing £1.5m in the construction of new offices and warehouse facility.

Cleardata’s investment is supported by a £304,000 Property Development Grant, and will create 18 new jobs and protect a further three.  The company has offices in Flintshire where it employs 3 staff and it is this operation that will expand thanks to the Welsh Government support.

Economy Cabinet Secretary Ken Skates said: “We are very much a pro-business Government and committed to working with companies to support their growth so I am delighted that Cleardata has chosen to expand and invest in Wales.

“The company will be creating a range of new job opportunities as it expands its operation in Wales to meet the growing demand for its document scanning, archive storage and document management services around the UK.”

Cleardata employs 75 people, provides services and solutions to help organisations reduce costs and go paperless.  The company offers secure archive storage with digital retrieval, document scanning services, digital mailroom, invoice processing, cloud document management and mobile application development.

Managing Director, Cleardata David Bryce said: “Our company grew by 22% last year and is set to grow faster again, after winning almost two million pounds of new contracts, attracting business from around the UK.  In order to sustain the growth we needed to create additional operational space and to increase the capacity of our archive storage facility.

“I am delighted we have taken the decision to expand in Wales, creating inward investment into the region. The expansion will support economic and employment growth through the creation of exciting new job opportunities within the area. Our business also needs to train and recruit new members of staff for varied roles within the organisation”

“Cleardata’s growth has been fuelled by the move towards digitisation and the cloud. We would welcome anyone interested in seeing how we can help their business save costs and become more efficient with their data and documentation.  For further information contact our team.
