“We are extremely delighted to welcome Daher Aerospace Limited to our family of businesses at Markham Vale creating 23 new jobs for the area.
“After a very challenging year for businesses this announcement sends a strong signal to other investors that Derbyshire is a place that helps businesses to survive and thrive.
“We’re thrilled they have chosen Markham Vale and have confidence in the Derbyshire economy and its potential for growth.”
The business has moved into MV55 – a pre-built 55,000 square foot industrial warehouse at the site located at Junction 29A of the M1 in Derbyshire.
Michael Betteridge at Daher Aerospace said:
“Following our success in being awarded a new logistics contract, the attractiveness of Markham Vale both in terms of location and building fitted perfectly with our requirements.”
