Somerset-based steelwork contractor welcomes MP as expansion plans begin
Littleton Steel has welcomed its local MP and former Secretary of State for Business, Jacob Rees-Mogg to its Chew Magna facility in Somerset.
During the visit, Mr Rees-Mogg was given a tour of the site, meeting all 16 members of staff and learnt about current projects and how the firm looks to expand its services in the near future.
Currently in rented premises, Littleton Steel has recently acquired its own manufacturing facility, located near to Junction 21, on the M5 motorway at Weston-super-Mare.
“We were delighted to welcome Mr Rees-Mogg MP to visit our workshop and to discuss the challenges and opportunities being faced, not only by our business but the steel and construction industry more widely.
“He was particularly impressed with the technical demonstration he received in the workshop and the insight he gained into the detailing process,” said Andy Raines, Director of Littleton Steel.
Jacob Rees-Mogg MP said: “It was great to meet the team at Littleton Steel and discuss with them the firm’s plans for future growth.
“I’m delighted that the company is working on major infrastructure projects like Hinckley Point C and contributing towards a stronger UK economy.”
