Stationery supplier Staples has announced that it is to create 170 new jobs when it opens a new warehouse in Corby, Northamptonshire. Staples is an international brand operating over 2,000 stores worldwide. The company will move into the Rockingham Estate sometime in 2015. It is understood that the warehouse has largely been unused, even though it was completed several years ago. The company commented that the central location, combined with access to the transport network was a major factor in deciding to operate from this site.
