The Gainsborough MP has visited the new, purpose built A.M. P. Rose factory.
Sir Edward Leigh went to visit the factory in Gainsborough which is home to one of the world’s leading suppliers of machinery to the chocolate, confectionary and snack industries with more than 80 per cent of their products exported to more than 80 countries worldwide, supplying new, used and rebuilt machinery and employs more than 150 people.
Chairman of A.M.P. Rose, Alan Mann, gave the tour to Sir Edward.
Sir Edward said: “It is really great to be given the opportunity to see a local company that is investing in new facilities, expanding and putting the great in Great Britain with exports around the globe.
“It is a real success story of a company founded in the late 1970s building a world class reputation and becoming pre-eminent in their field.
“The Rose name has a long history associated with Gainsborough, dating back over a century, to the packaging industry established by William Rose in 1881.
“I am confident that A.M.P. Rose will continue to flourish in this century as it has in the past.”
