Seems David Cameron is getting in the thick of finding out what small UK companies need to do to further promote growth and recruitment in the Design & Manufacturing sector.

The minister recently visited LPRS in Witney, a supplier of short-range radio devices used for industrial and commercial control and communications systems, who claim to have reduced the final cost of their product by over 10% whilst keeping the manufacturing within the UK. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Mr Cameron visiting such companies. Last year he visited the McLaren Technology Centre and of course not just him but all three parties are backing up the Queen Elizabeth prize for Engineers, launched last November.

Also the hunt is on for the Government to find a PR agency to promote the importance of UK engineering in education, consumer and corporate worlds too… let’s see who bags that one!
