Welcome Nifco

One of the country's top plastic moulding companies moved house officially today, though in practice like many house moves it's going to take a bit of time to complete.  Nifco's new factory in Eaglescliffe was officially opened by HRH the Duke of York who spoke warmly about the company's past record in winning work and training staff and about their future prospects.  With Cllr Alan Lewis I enjoyed meeting young men (yes, all men - come on girls!!) serving their apprenticeships with the company, an undergraduate trainee, Japanese trainees over here for a year, as well as long-established staff.  Having spent time with the MD last month we knew that he was proud of the training offered to staff and the loyalty of the staff.  Today we heard at first hand that the staff agree with him, talking of being offered other jobs but wanting to stay with Nifco because it's such a good company.

We look forward to working with them on whatever's needed to help their operation succeed.

A nice touch was the fact that the plaque unveiled was made by another successful local firm - Creative Glass.
