MIDLANDS ENGINE STRATEGY PUBLISHED

Release Date: 09 March 2017

Commenting on today's publicationof the Midlands Engine Strategy, Danny Harrison, business development managerat Birmingham-based Nicklin Transit Packaging, said:

"There's been much talk of the so-called Midlands Engine for some time nowso it's positive to finally see some concrete plans in place to boost theregion's productivity, skills and connectivity.

"As a transit packaging business, we rely on the regional transportnetwork to get business done, so any improvements that make it more efficientcan only be a good thing. What's more, recruitment continues to be a majorchallenge for manufacturers like us who are migrating towards more of apeople-led service proposition so the provision for greater championing ofskills and training here in the region should hopefully lead to strongercandidates being available in the long run.

"Publishing this strategy is naturally a positive step but as with all ofthese big-ticket Government initiatives, the proof will always be in thepudding."
