New year, new jobs at Sheerness

MORE than 300 new jobs will be
created following the announcement of two developments at the port of
Sheerness.

Up to 160 will be created by the
construction of a pre-delivery inspection centre for imported Peugeot Citroen
cars before they are dispatched to British showrooms.

The £2m centre will prepare 200,000
new cars a year from France, Spain and Italy for Gefco UK, the distribution arm
of Peugeot Citroen.

Another 150 jobs are expected to
come from the development of a £1.5m fruit-packing plant alongside the fresh
produce terminal on the quayside at Sheerness docks.
