Markets are open for business
WHEN ASKED whether the slow progress in Brexit talks could hinder the group’s progress, Harworth said no-one has been put off yet and its markets are open for business.
Harworth’s chief executive Owen Michaelson said: “If you look at the AMP you’ve got really skilled people delivering high end goods. That’s why Boeing, Rolls-Royce and McLaren are attracted.” He added that the group has greatly benefited from working with pro-active local authorities that are keen to regenerate their areas.
“The local authorities in the Northern Powerhouse region are open for business,” he said.
“They want to help us. Authorities like Rotherham, Doncaster and Barnsley are a pleasure to deal with.”
