Prospective Erewash MP Maggie Throup has welcomed the announcement by logistic firm DHL that they are to invest £90 million into their East Midlands Airport base.
Maggie visited the airport to see how they too are investing in renovating and expanding their facilities, in response to the more customers.
Maggie, pictured right with Nick James from the airport, said: “In Erewash we have a wealth of highly skilled manufacturing and engineering businesses, many of whom already export their products all over the world. I want to work with these businesses to ensure that we can capitalise on this new investment and ensure that we continue to grow our exports market locally.
“Investment on this scale by both DHL and the airport group itself provides us with further proof that the Conservatives long-term economic plan is working.”
