Sky News visited the facility today, on the morning that it broke the story of a shock contraction of 0.3% for UK economy in April, with a COVID crisis anomaly accountable for the downward trend.
Sky News caught up with Sales Director Garry Myatt as they walked the production cells of a busy facility, filming for the 7pm segment (Monday 13 June 2022).
Garry’s position though was representative of the business’ position since even before the disruption and challenges of COVID – one of positivity and an example of the resilience that’s become such a crucial stalwart to that position.
We’re growing, and the order book is still strong. In manufacturing, automotive growth offset the April decline. The winding down of the test and trace scheme is the anomaly that pushed the UK economy into negative territory.
