David Davis MP recently visited Jablite, an SME manufacturing expanded polystyrene insulation products in his constituency of Howden, Yorkshire, in order to learn about the company’s development and progress.
After the visit, which included a site tour conducted by Factory Manager, Robert Newsum, Mr Davis commented: “Jablite is an SME that has responded to the recession and a difficult marketplace by changing direction and focussing on innovation and new product development.
“This strategy is bringing Jablite success and it is great to see a company like this bucking the trends in the construction sector and the economy as a whole.<p>
“SME’s are vital to the recovery of the UK economy and it is companies like Jablite that are nimble, take opportunities and develop innovative new products that will help the country to get back on its feet.”
David Teasdale, Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The visit was a great success, it is good to have the opportunity to discuss issues like the Green Deal and new product certification with someone of the calibre of David Davis. He has extensive business and political experience and he showed a real interest in our business and products.
“Our innovative Dynamic insulation was of particular interest and, having a scientific background, David Davis was quick to pick up the salient points and see the enormous potential.
"We will definitely be inviting Mr Davis back to see the next development in Jablite's product innovations," added Mr Teasdale.
