We celebrated the opening of our second factory in Burgess Hill with a special event attended by Mims Davies, Member of Parliament for Mid-Sussex and Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Employment.
Our second factory opened its doors on the Victoria Road Industrial Estate in 2020, but the official opening was rescheduled to this month due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since launching, it has helped continue our impressive growth since it was founded by Nick Broom. We manufacture vehicle branding kits in reflective and printed materials, and, through successive contract wins now serve around 75% of the UK Police fleet market
Mims Davies was met by Nick Broom, managing director and PA, Emily Darnell, who introduced her to the team and toured the factory. Mims was shown vehicle wrapping in action, and pitched in with some collating and packing of reflective vehicle kits with the team during her visit.
She was particularly interested in our forward-thinking and inclusive employment schemes, including part-time and flexible working options. PVL employs several people with additional needs.
“It’s been a pleasure to officially open your second factory, especially since we met and worked together on a local initiative a few years ago. My tour of the factory was most enjoyable, and I wish you every success for the future.” – Mims Davies MP
Managing Director, Nick Broom said: “It was an honour to welcome our local MP and celebrate our second factory. We’re rapidly approaching our 25th anniversary, and we’re proud to be market leaders with multiple awards under our belt and a proven track record.
“We even just enjoyed the best month in our history, and this visit is the icing on the cake just ahead of National Manufacturing Day on 7 July.”
