An office furniture business is creating 75 jobs with the opening of a new headquarters and factory in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

The expansion at Orangebox in Nantgarw, includes a new design centre and will take its total south Wales workforce to 250.

The firm, which also has bases in Hengoed and Huddersfield, was created in 1998 from a management buy-out.

It exports to countries across Europe, North America, Africa and the Far East.

First Minister Carwyn Jones, who will open the new building on Wednesday, said firms such as Orangebox were a good example of how goods made in Wales can sell globally.
