Whilst it has not been possible to undertake some business visits because of Covid-19 restrictions I have regularly kept in touch with a number of our employers via Zoom, Teams and Telephone.

It was good to catch up with Chief Executive Adam Vicary of Castings PLC at the end of last week. Castings is one of the largest employers in my Aldridge-Brownhills constituency and it was good to hear about how Castings are rising to the current challenges which so many businesses face.
