Rory puts Dacre manufacturer Thermafleece on the 'Made By Britain' map

8th December 2011

 

Local MP Rory Stewart has nominated local Dacre-based business Thermafleece for a place on the Made By Britain map, a project run by the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group whereby Britain's MPs nominate one product that is designed and produced in their constituency for inclusion in the Made By Britain map of manufacturing. The project, which was launched by Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills Vince Cable MP, aims to raise awareness of the challenges facing Britain's productive industries, and realign the outdated concept of 'manufacturing' in the minds of the public.

Rory said: "Made By Britain is a great initiative, and one that has real resonance in Penrith and the Border, which boasts several small-scale manufacturers who are part of the networks of small, profitable businesses that keep our local economy afloat. I was proud to be able to nominate Thermafleece, not only because it is such an innovative product that is both natural and kind to the environment, but because it also supports traditional uplands farming methods. I encourage everyone to look at the website and get a sense of the extraordinary range of manufacturers that exist in Britain. We must do all we can to promote them".

Commenting on the award, Commercial Director Mark Lynn said "We are very proud to receive this accolade which acknowledges our commitment to the rural economy as well as our belief in driving home grown sustainable innovations".
