UK - Broadcaster and presenter John Craven has officially opened a Northern Irish company's new base in Pickering, North Yorkshire.

The opening of the centre at Thornton Road Industrial Estate also marked the 10th anniversary of Finrone Ltd, which supplies pig housing, slurry stores and slurry treatment systems.

The company was founded as Portapig in 1997 by managing director Gordon Forbes and recently acquired Malton-based Integrated Piggery Systems Ltd

Mr Forbes said: "North Yorkshire is an obvious choice for Finrone’s GB base. It is in the heart of one of the largest pig producing areas in GB and having a presence there gives us direct access to producers and enables us to provide a more efficient service."
