The manufacturing sector forms the backbone of our local business community across Aldridge-Brownhills, the Black Country and the wider West Midlands.

JC Payne are one of the leading Commercial Vehicle Bodybuilders in the UK and are an essential employer in the heart of our local community.

I was pleased to once again meet with Neil Brandrick the Managing Director of JC Payne and hear about the ongoing issues which are being faced by the manufacturing sector and more innovative ways in which the Government can continue to support this sector.

I will continue to champion manufacturing and small businesses and ensure that their voice is heard in Parliament across a range of Government departments.

Thank you to Neil for once again hosting my visit.
