Member of Parliament Jake Berry visits RCS

RCS Doors welcomed a visit from MP and Northern Powerhouse influencer, Jake Berry last week, as part of his focus and support of local businesses.

Mr Berry showed interest in understanding how RCS has driven the business forward with investment in new machinery, staff and most recently, brand new offices.

Having worked closely with the Chamber of Commerce and Boost, RCS has invested significantly in new machinery. The most recent additions include 77 and 95mm foam-injected lath machines (read more here).

The investment RCS has leaned on from Boost (Lancashire growth mentoring) has proved an integral feature in RCS’ growth as it continues to invest to keep pace with the overwhelming growth it is experiencing. It was great for MP Jake Berry to see first-hand the changes that are in fruition and the affect it is having, not only on RCS, but as an advocate for Lancashire-based enterprises, and creating new jobs in the area. It is a fantastic thing not only on a personal level for RCS Doors, but as a real representative/ambassador for The Northern Powerhouse.

Alongside the new office space, RCS has plans to introduce training facilities to improve safety within the industry as well as increase quality, employment opportunities and amplify product development. The industry is positively evolving and RCS are not only uniform within the timely developments but are in fact spearheading many of them.

“We were proud to welcome Mr Berry, and are excited and supportive of his work on The Northern Powerhouse and manufacturing investment within Lancashire.

“We are in an enviable position currently where month on month we are battling hard to meet the sheer demand there is for our product from new and existing customers. It was fantastic to talk Mr Berry through our business model and how investment and backing has helped us thrive.

The Northern Powerhouse exports over £50bn worldwide; a figure which RCS Doors has been able to contribute to more and more through involvement with the Chamber of Commerce and Boost’s mentoring.

“In these uncertain times it is reassuring to have the commitment and backing of MP’s like Mr Jake Berry” – Steven Kenny (MD).

Jake Berry commented; ‘It was an absolute pleasure to visit RCS Doors and see first hand just how well they are doing. Local manufacturing businesses like this are the backbone of our economy across Lancashire and the North of England, so it’s extremely encouraging to hear such positive news of investment, new jobs and expansion. I’m confident that despite any short-term uncertainty caused by Brexit that local businesses like RCS will continue to grow and prosper.’
