A logistics firm is continuing with its rapid expansion plans by moving to a second site in the county.
Premier Logistics has transferred the operations side of its business to a 10,000 sq ft premises on the same site as haulage group Pall-Ex in Ellistown, Coalville.
Premier Logistics, which has a base at Meridian Business Park, is already a major part of the Pall-Ex network, the company set up by Dragons' Den star Hilary Devey.
The logistics firm's 60,000 sq ft Meridian site will continue to include warehouse space, the company's customer service department and its recruitment arm, which employs temporary drivers. The space which has been freed up there will be converted into a training centre for drivers to study for a CPC qualification, due to open in October.
Bosses said the move to Coalville was a key part of the firm's expansion plans.
Company business consultant Mark Steel said it had centralised some key operations.
He said: "It's a move that will give us capacity for growth and more efficiency.
"Our three-year business plan is for us to almost double in size."
Earlier this year, the company's managing director Lee Christopher said he wanted turnover to achieve £10 million in 2013.
The business has seen a 33 per cent growth year on year since 2009.
Mr Steel said to cope with increasing demand the company had employed 40 to 50 extra temporary drivers in the past four weeks.
He said: "We are growing at an incredible rate and are taking many of the quality temporary drivers on as permanent Premier Logistics staff."
The company has more than 300 customers, including Samworth Brothers.
It played a major part in last year's royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton by safely delivering the wedding cake made by Fleckney cake-maker Fiona Cairns to Buckingham Palace, in a top secret operation.
There are eight employees working at the new hub at Pall-Ex, where Premier Logistics also has 1,000 sq ft of office space.
Mr Steel said the new training centre would be used to train drivers from other companies, as well as its own.
