Work has started on a new state-of-the-art warehouse which will bring scores of jobs to Derbyshire’s flagship regeneration site.
Ready Egg Products has selected Markham Vale for its new £8m manufacturing facility – creating 50 jobs for local people over the next two years.
The company chose the site, next to junction 29A of the M1, for its excellent transport links, saying it will help provide a more efficient service to its clients.
Charles Crawford, managing director of Ready Egg Products, said Markham Vale is “ideal” for the firm.
The company processes more than 1.4m eggs per day for a number of high profile clients to use in food-making including cakes, pastries and pies.
The warehouse is expected to open next June.
