David Jones MP is urging local companies in north Wales to seize the business opportunities presented by the proposed development of a 'super-prison' in Wrexham.
The £250m worth of investment in a new prison in Wrexham is a development that will not only improve prisoner welfare, but will also be a significant boost to the economy of north east Wales.
It is set to create up to 1,000 jobs and contribute around £23m per annum, providing huge construction opportunities and great possibilities for local businesses.
I want to ensure that north Wales companies take advantage of this unique opportunity, show that we have some of the very best suppliers, and demonstrate the quality of our work and the value we can offer.
