The move to larger premises at Quarriers Village means that the company, will not only be creating more local jobs, but will be in a position to increase its manufacture and packaging operation to accommodate their growing export market.
In discussing the business projections for 2012 it appears there will be no time for Anita and her team to rest on their laurels though, as like all successful businesses in the Scottish SME sector, Jenier are committed to the continued development of high quality products underpinned by an intense customer focus which is pivotal when considering initiatives that will consolidate their trade position and expand their local, UK and export markets.
