There has been significant international interest in how the UK manufacturing sector is reacting to ‘Brexit’ and this has seen PP Control & Automation hit the global headlines.
Reuters were the first to show an interest in the company and the thoughts of MD Tony Hague and Chairman David Fox during a factory visit last week.
Economics Correspondent Andy Bruce was keen to talk about initial reaction, freedom of movement and the positive implications of the falling price of Sterling on exports.
The article was one of the newswire’s leading stories on Friday morning and went on to appear in twenty other publications across eight countries.
“I think it’s important that manufacturers are still talking positively about the future – the last thing we want to do is talk ourselves into a possible recession,” explained Tony.
“There is going to be uncertainty, but we’ve got to focus on our strengths and look at potential opportunities that Brexit may bring. One initial example is the falling price of Sterling, which does make us more competitive when exporting to certain countries.”
He went on to add: “We are still going ahead with key investments, including expansion of our factory and a sales drive in Germany.”
In addition to the Reuters visit, PP Control & Automation also hosted Süddeutsche Zeitung, one of the most popular newspapers in Germany.
The article should be appearing over the next couple of weeks.
