The chancellor of the exchequer, The Right Honourable George Osborne MP visited Chippenham based electronic controls manufacturer, Danlers as part of a two day visit to the area.
Danlers was chosen by the local conservative office for the visit as an example of a successful local company who have maintained their status as a UK manufacturer, resisting the trend to manufacture abroad. Danlers has been in business in North Wiltshire for over 20 years, make energy saving lighting controls and is a recipient of the prestigious Queen’s award for Enterprise: Innovation.
The chancellor was guided around Danlers by executive chairman, Tony Kay and chief operating officer, Kevin Johnstone. Tony Kay commented, ‘Mr Osborne seemed to be impressed we manufactured well designed products here in the UK by using the latest automatic electronic assembly equipment alongside traditional skills and that by doing so could compete with goods made in the far east in both cost and quality.’
