I am happy to announce that I have made a nomination to the Exported By Britain campaign, which seeks to highlight the great work that is being done all around the world thanks to Britain’s manufacturing and creative sectors.
I have nominated Veracare, a company that has been manufacturing innovative and lifesaving products right in the heart of my constituency for over 50 years.
Their innovative infection prevention products are exported to 48 countries and have become a gold standard for patient waste management across the globe.
Not only are they a major employer, when I visited recently I was really impressed to learn that they have a large number of employees who have been with the company for more than 10, 20, 30 and almost 40 years. This is the kind of job security that I know local residents really want from employers, and it just goes to show the level of talent that is being developed right here on our doorstep.
