We were privileged to welcome Andy Street, Mayor of Birmingham, today. Together with the West Midlands Combined Authority we hosted a special event to look at the work being done across the region to innovate and deliver new green technologies.
We are firmly based in the West Midlands as a green technology and manufacturing company so this was an ideal fit for the things we take a lot of pride in. We try to work with companies within a 50 mile radius, we have our main manufacturing site at Southam and a team at Bletchley train maintenance depot.
And possibly most of all – we sold our first fleet of trains to West Midlands Railway where they have been running in service for 3 years now.
If it wasn’t enough to welcome the Mayor, we also had a flying visit by the Prime Minister. With masks, rail announcements and general noise it’s difficult to gauge what he heard – but if you are reading this what I was saying was WE ARE AN EXPORT SUCCESS FOR THE UK!!!
