Integra 61 is strategically positioned in an area where the population has steadily grown over the last fifteen years and is now estimated to have reached 513,200 (72% of whom are of working age) within County Durham.
6.7% of those aged between 16 and 64 are currently seeking employment.
As a catchment with high levels of industrial activity, this labour pool comprises both experienced warehouse professionals and new entrants to the industry, therefore meeting business needs across all levels of a supply chain operation.
The gross weekly pay for full-time workers in County Durham is estimated as being at least 10% less than both the national average and elsewhere in the North East. Across a 200-person workforce, this will result in a significant saving of £0.5m per year in labour costs compared to elsewhere in the UK.
Combine that with the high level of investment currently being made by the UK government to improve the connectivity of the region, and it’s easy to see that Integra 61 benefits from the best of both worlds. With easy access routes to the rest of the UK and abroad, a ready and willing labour pool, and the cost of operations being reduced across all areas, now is the time to locate to Integra 61.
