During National Apprenticeship Week, it was a pleasure to be back at the Ibstock Atlas site in Aldridge alongside our West Midlands Mayor Andy Street. 

Ibstock are a significant local employer in my Aldridge-Brownhills constituency – with a pioneering ‘pathfinder’ factory as part of their journey to net zero. It was great to see the team again as they progress commissioning of the new site and I look forward to returning again in the near future when they are fully operational.
