BROMSGROVE Council bosses visited one of the district’s largest employers to find out what it could do to meet the firm’s business needs.
Leader Coun Karen May and chief executive Kevin Dicks visited LG Harris which employs 300 people at its site in Stoke Prior.
The firm is part of the branded consumer goods conglomerate, ORKLA which employs 18,500 people worldwide.
Coun May said: “Their mantra is ‘People First’ and the welfare of their employees are high up on their agenda which is great as it’s our local people who they are employing.
“And by understanding why being based in Bromsgrove works for them and seeing how we can support them more, we can use this knowledge to attract further big companies to the area, providing further opportunities for our residents so they can continue to live, work and play in their local area.”
Next on the list of companies to visit is property development and investment company, The Barberry Group, situated in Bell End.
