The Star has recently written about more high-tech investment in Sheffield manufacturing.
I’m thrilled to welcome William Cook Holdings’ new ‘Precision’ factory to Sheffield. The investment into high-tech manufacturing in the region just keeps coming – a testament to the quality of advanced technical capability and highly skilled workers here. The £6m factory will secure up to 200 good jobs.
While it might be a world-class technical firm, it’s still a family business and one that has been in Sheffield for generations. Our industrial capability is distinguished by its proud history and the great presence and influence it has in Sheffield.
With modernised equipment and a solid commitment to training and skills as they take on new apprentices, this is exactly the kind of forward-looking investment that will drive UK manufacturing forward. I wish them every success for the future.
