Visit & Tour of Maesteg Based Manufacturer 'Siderise'
Huw Irranca-Davies MS, Councillor, Dr. Charles Smith, Councillor Gareth Howells and Councillor Paul Davies were welcomed to the site of Siderise in Maesteg, to hear what the company are achieving locally and globally.
The visiting group were updated on the company's future plans for manufacturing in Maesteg - an investment in advanced manufacturing to advance building safety, create jobs and cement their position as a market-leader in passive fire solutions for facades.
Following the visit Huw Irranca-Davies MS said:
"It was a real pleasure to visit Maesteg-based manufacturer Siderise today, to learn about their cutting edge products, speak to their skilled workforce, and hear more about their really exciting plans for expansion and new products.
Our tour of the existing plant and future expansion meant there were plenty of questions from local councillors Cllr Gareth Howells and Cllr Paul Davies, and Bridgend Cabinet Member Cllr Dr Charles Smith. It was wellies and hard-hats all around!
Siderise Group is a UK and global leader, based right here in these valleys. It's a hidden gem, and a market leader, with some of the finest talent in manufacturing and product development, and with plenty of long-serving and loyal staff too.
It's great to celebrate a success like this, and manufacturing excellence too."
