Work has started on a new £8 million manufacturing facility which will create 50 new jobs.
Northern Ireland’s biggest egg processor, Ready Egg Products, has selected Derbyshire County Council’s Markham Vale site for its new manufacturing facility - creating 50 jobs over the next two years.
The company chose the site, next to junction 29A of the M1, for its transport links.
Councillor Joan Dixon, Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Jobs, Economy and Transport, said: “I am delighted to welcome Ready Egg Products to Markham Vale for the development of its new base which will bring 50 new job opportunities.
“A lot of hard work has gone into getting Markham Vale to the stage it is during extremely tough economic times, and there have been some very positive recent developments with more in the pipeline.
“Everything we have done at Markham is geared towards long-term job creation.”
