Thirty jobs could be created in Ely over the next two years thanks to a door manufacturing company which is building its business headquarters in Lancaster Way Business Park.

Deanta UK Ltd has started work on a purpose-built 40,000 square foot building, to include a state-of-the-art warehouse and contemporary office space, believing the city to be “up-and-coming”.

The development of the building and infrastructure development is being undertaken by Mick George and is part of the Cambridge Compass Enterprise Zone.

Mike O’Toole, managing director of Deanta, said: “We are very excited about moving our operations to Lancaster Way as it will undoubtedly enhance our reputation and give us plenty of room for growth.

“In fact, we plan on employing an extra 30 people over the next two years.
