Andrea welcomes Minister for Business, Energy and Corporate Responsibility to CLADE Engineering

I was delighted to welcome Lord Callanan, Minister of State for Business, Energy and Corporate Responsibility to CLADE Engineering. CLADE are at the forefront of new sustainable technologies and are an industry leader in heat pump manufacturing. In February I opened their new multi-million pound factory in Gildersome Spur (https://www.andreajenkyns.co.uk/news/andrea-opens-new-engineering-facility) showing their commitment to – and confidence in – our growing local economy.

Investments of this nature also signify that Morley and Outwood’s micro economy is ahead of the trend and future-roofed against the inevitable challenges that the future holds.

I’ll be working with CLADE engineering to ensure that they’re able to grow here in our community and continue to be at the heart of the future of our economy.
