A GLOBAL tractor and forklift business is opening its new premises in the county, creating 40 jobs in the process.

TVH, which specialises in tractor parts and fork lift trucks, is recruiting for its new 12,000 sq metre site with the help of county recruitment firm Hewett Recruitment.

Staff are being hired after the firm completed its new site in Stourport Road, Kidderminster.

Martin Packer, warehouse and logistics manager of TVH, said: "Hewett’s have always provided a high level of service and commitment – they were the obvious choice for this project."

With the site ready to open, TVH is looking for 40 people in December and January to fill roles as warehouse operatives and Bendi/Flexi drivers.

As the finishing touches were put to the site, the Hewett team visited the site, bringing with them Christmas decorations and mince pies.
