  • Pexa welcomes Craig Whittaker MP

    On Friday 21st July 2017, Pexa welcomed Craig Whittaker MP to their premises in Holywell Green. Craig was first elected as Calder Valley MP in 2010 and is a well-known supporter of local businesses and the contribution they make to the economy and local communities. He visited Pexa to learn more about the business and the plans for growth over the coming years.

    Managing Director of Pexa, Jim Rowbotham, (pictured with Craig) had a short meeting with Craig and took him on a tour of the site, where he was able to talk to most of the Pexa team and hear their thoughts on wide range of issues, which they were more than happy to share.

    Craig was interested to learn of Pexa’s international growth achievements and plans for the future. Important aspects of the impacts of Brexit and other business issues were high on the agenda and Craig took on board many of the points which are important to UK businesses. Jim Rowbotham said “We were very pleased that Craig made time to come and see us and was willing to engage with us on the real issues that we face. I was very pleased that our team offered such a friendly welcome and that Craig was so willing to take time to get to know us”.
