It was a pleasure to visit Bright Bar West Midlands in Aldridge and learn more about this local manufacturing company at the heart of our community. The family run steel bar and wire manufacturer is exporting its goods to markets across the world, and I enjoyed learning more about what they do.

The visit gave me a further insight into the issues currently facing the steel sector as well as seeing at first-hand the importance of the manufacturing sector to our local economy and the wider country. I would like to thank Adam Patrick the Managing Director and all of the Bright Bar staff for a fantastic visit.
