We're already immensley proud of our hard work, first class products and family heritage here at Specialised Covers, but it was an honour to be selected as a 'Specialist Manufacturing Representative' for The Parliamentary Review.
Last week, we were invited to Westminster to join a small number of other outstanding organisations to see the very first copies of the printed review, and listen to key speakers sharing knowledge and insight into the business and public sector.
Our Managing Director, Gavin Hughes represented Specialised Covers at Westminster, meeting influential people and sharing his thoughts.
Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s September release is a key fixture in the political calendar.
We're delighted to feature alongside the Prime Minister and organisations in a document that looks back on the year in industry and Westminster. The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool.
Across all policy areas, The Parliamentary Review is sent to over half a million leading policymakers. The articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.
The Prime Minister commented that ‘this year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics’ and this is reflected in the articles from leading journalists and best-practice representatives alike.
The PM’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, who was recently appointed Chairman of the Review, said ‘it has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.’
The Parliamentary Review’s Director Daniel Yossman concurred, saying ‘Specialised Covers Limited and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year’s Review possible.
Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy. It’s always a real joy to hear from policymakers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has had an effect on their thinking.
It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.’
We've been in business for almost 40 years, working hard and creating a business to be proud of. We were delighted to be involved with The Parliamentary Review, and something so important to the British manufacturing industry.
