A firm which advises companies on hazardous environments could create 50 jobs in Flintshire in the next five years, it has been claimed.

CSA Group is moving its Sira operations - which certifies and tests "hazardous location equipment" - to Hawarden Business Park from Chester.

The Welsh government described it as the first major relocation into the Deeside Enterprise Zone.

Economy Minister Edwina Hart said it was "excellent news".

The company's new 27,000 sq ft (2,500 sq m) premises are due to be completed by spring 2015.

Dana Parmenter, managing director of CSA Group Sira, said: "Our new, state-of-the-art facility in Hawarden Business Park puts us right in the heart of a manufacturing centre of excellence.

"We look forward contributing to the continued growth and innovation in the Enterprise Zone."

A Sira spokeswoman said the firm provides risk assessment for hazardous locations in sectors such as construction and industry, and certifies equipment.

Mrs Hart said the company would "provide great benefits to the local economy and the local community", adding: "This is excellent news and a great endorsement of the Deeside Enterprise Zone."
