Gavin Williamson visited Total Group to discuss the benefits of major infrastructure projects for the West Midlands.
On Friday, the 4th of June, the MP for South Staffordshire met with the Director, Mathew Hague, and Andy Kirkcaldy, Non-Executive Chairman, of Total Group, a market-leading British manufacturer of construction supplies supporting rail, nuclear and construction projects.
The fast-growing company is expanding but prides itself on its British heritage by actively supporting local communities, increasing employment, and purchasing where possible from a localised supply chain.
Total Group has received purchase orders from key projects such as HS2, the most important economic regeneration project in decades. HS2 will greatly reduce overcrowding, put Britain on track a net-zero carbon future and increase connectivity between London and the West Midlands.
Gavin Williamson said "I am proud to visit businesses who are bringing tangible benefits to our region. With exciting new projects like HS2, the British company will bolster growth and generate more job opportunities. I will continue to work with businesses to bring in more investment to the West Midlands helping us achieve our goal of levelling up the country."
Matthew Hague said "We were delighted to welcome Mr Williamson and have the chance to show some of the manufacturing opportunities we are winning with HS2 and other major infrastructure projects. Nationally important developments like these will enable us to raise skill levels, safeguard existing jobs but, most importantly, create new jobs for the West Midlands."
