The East Midlands Logistics Centre has a Special Visit from the Mayor of Derby

The Mayor of Derby, Councillor Paul Pegg paid a special visit to the newly opened East Midlands Logistics Centre on Thursday 13th August 2015.


The Mayor was unfortunately unable to attend the buildings opening on the 24th July, a day that featured The Rt. Hon. Patrick McLoughlin MP, Amanda Solloway MP and the original architect Ted Cullinan CBE.

During his time on site, the Mayor was greeted by the company’s Directors, shown around the newly refurbished site, had a chance to meet with the Fresh Logistics and East Midlands Logistics Centre team and then enjoyed a locally provided lunch.

Cllr Paul Pegg – Mayor of Derby commented:

It was great to see such a young innovative company like Fresh Logistics in Derby.
They are offering working space and meeting rooms within their building whilst still carrying on their core business of temperature controlled transport and storage to the food, pharmaceutical and associated industries.

Business Development Manager Oli Saffell stated:

We are truly grateful that the Mayor could join us, it’s great that such a recognisable figure noticed the potential in our company and agreed to pay us a visit, it really shows how far we’ve come in what seems like such a short space of time.Listening to the stories he had to share and the work he doing for the community was inspiring.
