Vince Cable Visits AMS Neve Factory


AMS Neve was delighted to welcome Rt Hon. Dr Vince Cable Secretary of State for Business, Innovation & Skills last week, as he visited our Burnley-based factory as part of a high-profile tour of the town’s businesses. The Business Secretary enjoyed a tour of the site with AMS Neve’s Managing Director, Mark Crabtree, and even got behind the mixing desk – enjoying an exclusive demo of the Genesys Black.

Dr Cable praised Burnley’s manufacturing firms, the Bondholders scheme and the town’s renewed business reputation during a visit yesterday. He said: “I’m sure other towns could learn from Burnley. It’s turned around a very bad reputation within five years through hard work, political support and good officers at the council who are totally committed to growth and regeneration.”

“It shows what can be done. If every other part of Britain operated like Burnley we wouldn’t be talking about a recession.”
