George Osborne pays a visit to Triton

Published:  06 February, 2014

Last month (16 January) the Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, visited Triton – The Great British Shower Company in Nuneaton.

The Chancellor visited the site on a visit to the West Midlands to promote manufacturing and innovation as drivers of economic growth and a rebalanced economy.

Lorna Fellowes, managing director of Triton, said: “It was really great to have time to talk to the Chancellor, who came with Triton’s local MP, Marcus Jones, on a one to one basis and then show him around our manufacturing facility. George Osborne chatted to many of the employees in manufacturing and even sat on the production line and produced a component, which impressed everyone.”

Ms Fellowes added: “After the factory tour we went to Triton’s restaurant where we spent time with 20 employees from across the business in a Q&A session, and the Chancellor heard our ideas and concerns. It was a very helpful session covering everything from what the government is doing to promote enterprise to support for working mothers.”
