Chancellor Rishi Sunak welcomed by BCSA steelwork contractor
Steelwork contractor Caunton Engineering welcomed the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak MP, to its Moorgreen, Nottingham manufacturing facility.
Mr Sunak was given a tour of the company’s fabrication works as well as Caunton’s Apprentice Training Academy.
Showing an interest in how recruits are trained, he held an informal meeting with a team of eight apprentices, together with some that had previously graduated from Caunton’s apprenticeship scheme.
Apprentices explained to Mr Sunak their career development to date and why they chose to join the steel construction industry. One of the apprentices even gave the Chancellor some practical training in fabricating steelwork.
During the day, Caunton also hosted a meeting between the Chancellor and local business leaders from the Ashfield (East Midlands) area. As the visit also coincided with the Spring Statement, Mr Sunak was also interviewed in the fabrication facility by the main media and TV outlets.
