Daher Aerospace creates 23 new jobs at Markham Vale

Daher Aerospace has taken 55,000 sq. ft. at Markham Vale, from where it will contribute logistic services for Cairo’s monorail project and create 23 new jobs.

Daher is an aircraft manufacturer and an industry and service equipment supplier working across aircraft manufacturing, aerospace equipment, and systems, logistics and supply chain services.

The business has moved into MV55, an industrial warehouse at Markham Vale, where it will provide logistic services for Alstom in nearby Derby, which is building new monorail lines in Cairo.

Markham Vale is a 200-acre industrial and logistics development located at Junction 29A of the M1 in Derbyshire, a joint venture between property developer HBD and Derbyshire County Council. A hugely successful regeneration project, it has transformed a former colliery site and created thousands of jobs since work began, with just 13-acres now remaining for development.

This latest deal follows a successful start to the year for the scheme – two large units for Aver are due to complete in the coming weeks, and popular restaurant Chester’s has chosen Markham Vale for its second location, with planning permission granted and work due to begin on site.

Richard Hinds, Development Surveyor at HBD, said: “Markham Vale proved an ideal location for Daher, with brand new industrial space close to key motorway networks and a strong local skills base. We’ve no doubt that MV55 will prove a very successful base for the business.”

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.

Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Clean Growth and Regeneration Councillor Tony King said: “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.”
