Health and Safety Director Jobs in Huddersfield

Located in West Yorkshire in the metropolitan borough of Kirklees, Huddersfield is a large town that sits approximately halfway between Leeds and Manchester.

Since Saxon times, Huddersfield has been a market town and it has also long been known for its manufacturing capabilities. Textiles and woven items were some of the town's main produce for hundreds of years, while agricultural goods and milling were also vital for its economy through to the 18th century.

Huddersfield was a major player during the Industrial Revolution and its success during this time can still be seen in the beautiful Victorian architecture dotted around the town - particularly the Grade I listed railway station. 

These days, Huddersfield is still largely a manufacturing town with lots of opportunity for those seeking Health and Safety Director positions. The region is home to various large-scale textile companies like C & J Antich and Huddersfield Fine Worsteds. The latter supplies to top-name fashion houses like Prada, Armani, Givenchy and Chanel.

Of course, the region's scope for production has been broadened and other companies are mainly based in the chemicals and engineering markets. Cummins Turbo Technologies manufactures turbochargers, while Syngenta AG is known for crop protection chemicals. There's also Trojan Plastics, which produces stylish baths.

In addition, Poundstretcher operates its headquarters in nearby Deighton and Andrew Jones Pies is in Huddersfield.
