A new warehouse is being built in north Leicestershire, which is being built on a 25-acre site in the East Midlands Distribution Centre (EMDC) at Castle Donington. The warehouse will be 525,000 sq ft and may even open opportunities for up to 1,000 jobs to be created.

According to sources, the warehouse construction will be backed up by a 290 million Euro fund by the EMDC scheme. The first project will be around the same size as six football pitches.
