Jobs and an expansion are on the way after companies from Hartlepool and Washington merged.
The Omega Group has been formed between Hartlepool and Blyth based Omega Plastics, and Washington’s Signal Plastics.
The workforce will rise from 80 people to more than 100. Omega Plastics and Signal Plastics will continue to provide their existing customers with rapid and production tooling and plastic injection moulding services.
Omega Plastics was formed in 2006 and moved to Hartlepool in 2012. Signal Plastics will move to a new 42,000sq ft facility in Washington in January next year.
