Construction is set to start next summer on the 2,000-place North Wales Prison on the city’s former Firestone site.
Firms are now being invited to a “Local Supplier Engagement Event” next month to meet the construction companies bidding to build the proposed prison.
Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones, said: “The £250 million worth of investment in a new prison in Wrexham is a development that will not only improve prisoner welfare, but will also be of significant boost to the economy of north east Wales.
“It is set to create up to 1,000 jobs and contribute around £23m per annum, providing huge construction opportunities and great possibilities for local businesses.
“I want to ensure that north Wales companies take advantage of this unique opportunity, show that we have some of the very best suppliers, and demonstrate the quality of our work and the value we can offer.”
Trades required include general building services,alarm systems, cleaning, fencing, electrical services, metalwork fabrication, painting and decorating, agency labour supplies, plastering, security and waste management.
