MP for Stamford and Bourne Gareth Davies visits businesses across the area with InvestSK
MP for Stamford and Bourne Gareth Davies visited businesses across the area as part of a tour organised by InvestSK, South Kesteven’s economic growth and regeneration company.
The visit was also attended by Coun Kelham Cooke, chairman of InvestSK and leader of South Kesteven District Council, Steve Bowyer, chief executive of InvestSK, and Jon Hinde, head of economy and skills at InvestSK.
The tour highlighted the strength and diversity of the local economy and its companies, and the value, and growth potential, of international trade for the area.
Companies featured during the visit included Sophie Allport in Bourne, Bright Lite Structures in Stamford and Airblast Eurospray in Langtoft.
Each showcased its products and services, and shared issues that are key to the business’ continued success, with infrastructure, workforce skills and trade links all discussed as priority areas.
Mr Davies said: “The tour provided a fascinating insight into some of the many great businesses trading successfully from our area.
“I am always hugely impressed, not only by the entrepreneurial spirit that is evident here, but also by the tremendous opportunities that lie ahead for our local companies. That is why securing international trade deals globally is so important and why I’ll continue to highlight our area as an economic powerhouse, right at the heart of government.”
Mr Bowyer added: “Fundamentally, InvestSK is here to help all and any businesses to grow in South Kesteven, whatever their size. We do that by getting to know our local companies, so that we can better understand both the challenges and opportunities they face, and provide the right support where it’s needed most.”
InvestSK is South Kesteven’s economic growth and regeneration company.
