Prospective Erewash MP Maggie Throup has welcomed the recent announcement by logistic firm DHL that they are to invest £90 million into their East Midlands Airport base.
The comments come after Maggie visited the region’s main airport to see how they too are investing in renovating and expanding their facilities, in response to the growing number of customers coming through the airport.
Speaking about the investment Maggie said:
“I am delighted that DHL have chosen to further invest in our region.
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.”
