The expansion of a green company in Norwich could provide a graduate jobs boost to the area, according to reports.
Achor International, which derives fuel from household waste, is currently in discussions to build new plants in the US, Africa, Asia and Europe and has said that its staff numbers in the UK may rise from six to 30 by the end of the year if it expands its overseas operations, reports the Norwich Evening News.
The firm's chairman Chris Barry told the newspaper that any positions created would be skilled graduate jobs, and a recent move to new premises at Colney Hall means there is now space to take on new recruits.
"This move enables us to grow the team significantly, whilst maintaining and developing the science links that are so important to the development of the company," he told the newspaper.
It was recently reported that supermarket giant Sainsbury's is also hoping to create graduate jobs in the Midlands with a new store opening in South Derbyshire.
