International company gets keys to new base at Markham Vale
International sterilisation specialist Sterigenics has moved into its new state-of-the-art facility at Markham Vale and is creating up to 30 new jobs.
The firm’s bespoke sterilisation facility at Derbyshire County Council and Henry Boot Development’s flagship regeneration site located just off junction 29A of the M1 is set to officially open in December 2018.
The company specialises in sterilising medical equipment and has facilities in 13 countries including America and China. The new site will be in addition to its existing base at Somercotes in Derbyshire.
Adrian Wye, Director of Operations of Sterigenics, said: “Our Markham Vale North facility is strategically located to serve the needs of our European customers. Its prime location at the heart of the UK’s motorway network will provide an optimum location for their supply chain logistics. And our facility’s high-tech capabilities will deliver the turnaround times necessary to distribute their products to market quickly.”
Derbyshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration Councillor Tony King said: “We’re delighted to welcome Sterigenics to our Markham Vale site and news they’re set to create up to 30 jobs is fantastic.
“The firm’s investment in Derbyshire shows how confident they are in the county as a place to grow their business and thrive.
“Markham’s excellent location next to the M1 motorway is set to help the business reach even more customers and we’re looking forward to following the progress of their new state-of-the-art facility.”
The company’s new 69,000 sq ft base has been built by Henry Boot Developments – the county council’s private sector property partner.
