Leader of South Gloucestershire Council Cllr Toby Savage joined the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Kwasi Kwarteng MP for a tour of businesses in South Gloucestershire on Thursday 3 June.
Cllr Savage accompanied MP Kwarteng as he was given a tour of the National Composite Centre (NCC), based at the Bristol and Bath Science Park in Emersons Green, and talked about the innovative work being done in the engineering, aerospace and research and development sectors within South Gloucestershire.
BEIS Secretary of State Kwasi Kwarteng MP said: “It was great to visit South Gloucestershire and get a first-hand view of the impressive work taking place in this global centre of excellence for aerospace and digital engineering. With industry leaders such as Airbus, GKN and Rolls Royce in such close proximity, and with the cutting-edge work of the National Composite Centre, it is clear that South Gloucestershire is incredibly well-placed to not only help our country to build back better, but to compete on the world stage too.”
Leader of South Gloucestershire Council Cllr Toby Savage said: “It was a pleasure to take part in a visit from the Secretary of State, which included some of our leading businesses in the area. We are very proud of the engineering and aerospace innovation taking place here in South Gloucestershire and it was fantastic to be able to see and hear more about some of the pioneering work in these industries.”
