Next Generation Data (NGD)

“Next Generation Data was established to create an out of London data centre campus to provide a secure, low risk facility for the vast  global growth in IT and data services. As a person originating from south Wales, I had always wanted to set up a business in the area.

NGD now operates a world class facility in Newport with a number of blue chip clients who have also been attracted to the location due to the physical security the site offers and the area in general. The Celtic Springs Business Park, opposite NGD, is developing quickly and we are already doing business with a major company located there.”

Ministry of Justice Shared Services

“We chose Celtic Springs, Newport after a thorough and robust selection process. Our criteria included good transport links, the quality of the building itself and the ability to attract the right quality of workforce – Celtic Springs ticked all those boxes. We were delighted with both the quantity and quality of response throughout the interview process.”

Steve Hodgson, former Head of Shared Service Centre

Halo Foods

“One of the key factors to our success in staying at the top of a very competitive market is our workforce. More than anything this industry needs a pool of dedicated employees that also demonstrate a willingness to adapt to new working patterns. This can be a difficult combination to find, but our employees are the basis of our success. Another factor is the location, and from Newport the links to the M4 motorway are superb, which helps us to make on-time deliveries of food products to our customers.”

Robin Williams, Head of Human Resources


“Wilkinson has a deep appreciation for the value of good human relationships at work and Wales has not disappointed. Since we opened our distribution centre at Magor, Newport, we have found an unrivalled enthusiasm amongst our workforce and customers which promises well for the future.

Our 850,000 sq ft distribution centre is ideally located to serve not only Wales but also the south and south west of England. ”
