HM Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, Helen Nellis, has visited Manor Concepts in Sandy as part of her role as business ambassador for Bedfordshire.
Manor Concepts is a leading supplier of innovative solutions for refrigerated retail display cabinets and associated equipment. It operates as two trading divisions - Manor Refrigerated Cabinets and coolsuredoors. Manor Refrigerated Cabinets supplies a wide range of refrigerated display cabinets for food and drink retailers, while coolsuredoors is a specialist door manufacturer for retail chiller cabinets.
The Lord-Lieutenant met managing director Michael Tucker, commercial director David Wright and operations director Martin Corken, who took her on a tour of the showroom, factory and new test laboratory, which included demonstrations of the technology.
The Lord-Lieutenant said: 'I was highly impressed by the level of creativity and innovation that I experienced during my tour. It is wonderful to see such successful businesses choosing to locate and remain in Bedfordshire.'
Michael Tucker said: 'It was encouraging to be chosen to receive a visit from the Lord-Lieutenant. Helen Nellis is an experienced businesswoman who, in her position as Bedfordshire Business Ambassador, takes an active role in promoting up and coming Bedfordshire SMEs, like ourselves.'
Mr. Tucker went on to say: 'Our company intends to play a very active part in the planned 'Business Improvement District' which aims to support the regeneration and development of the Middlefield Industrial Estate. This in turn will benefit the current businesses and encourage new enterprises to join us.
'Given the great support from Central Bedfordshire Council, this now looks like a real possibility and I'm sure that in the future we will all reap the benefits of this initiative.'
