Pendlewood’s new expanded headquarters were formally opened last week and it was a special occasion for all involved. We managed to attract our local MP, Rosie Cooper who had the distinction of formally declaring the new unit open for work!
After the grand opening ceremony, Ms Cooper – Labour MP for West Lancashire since 2005 – was treated to a full tour of the expanded premises where she got to meet Pendlewood workers and take a look at our groundbreaking project for Forefield Primary School in Merseyside that is currently being worked on before it heads for installation.
Following this Rosie and Pendlewood Managing Director Alan Pendlewood sat and discussed a variety of issues including the recession, local business and Pendlewood’s ambitious plans for the future. The undoubted success of the event can be seen from the surrounding pictures.
Alan was thrilled with the day and was extremely impressed with his local MP. He enthused: “I was really pleased on three accounts. Firstly, it was just fantastic to have the new unit formally opened; it felt like we had taken another crucial step on our journey to the top.
“Secondly, I was delighted that Rosie Cooper got to see that a local company is still managing to thrive in such economically challenging times.
“Finally, it was a pleasure to have a sharp mind like Rosie visit. Politicians’ public images have taken a battering this year but if they all showed Rosie’s commitment to the job and her constituents as well as her ‘can-do’ attitude then I suspect the publicity would be much more positive.”
