Owen Meredith, the Conservative parliamentary candidate for Newcastle-under-Lyme, visited Chesterton based designer, manufacturer and supplier of street furniture, Broxap this week, as part of his continuing tour of local businesses.
The family owned business, manufactures a diverse range of products from cycle shelters, canopies, covered walkways, litter bins & benches to playground and sports equipment, employing almost two hundred people locally.
Owen spoke to the business about the impact that Brexit will have on the area.
As part of his plan to secure a better future for Newcastle, Owen Meredith has pledged to partner local businesses with schools and colleges and to help bring higher wages and more jobs to Newcastle.
Owen Meredith commented: “I’m making it my priority to listen to local employers and ensure their voices are properly heard, locally and nationally.
“Manufacturing businesses like Broxap are the beating heart of our local economy and deserve to be championed. Leaving the European Union offers opportunities for local businesses like Broxap, in terms of business growth, skills and jobs, and I am committed to helping secure the best deal possible.”
Simon Ellis – Graphic Design & Marketing Manager commented: “Owen is a young man with a plan and his passion for the area was clear. It was great to show Owen around the factory and to discuss the many opportunities a growing economy will bring our way.”
“The reality of Brexit means it is more important than ever that Theresa May secures strong trade deals that will benefit businesses like ours, and it was good to meet a parliamentary candidate who recognises the importance of this task.”
Owen Meredith is keen to meet more local businesses to hear your views on the issues which affect you and your priorities for Brexit negotiations. If you would like a meeting with Owen please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
