Today I invited the Minister for Employment Esther McVey to Dymag – a Chippenham manufacturer of world class carbon fibre wheels for sports cars, bikes and motorbikes with plans to create dozens of new jobs and apprenticeship as they expand their business. The location of their expansion is undetermined – I am working to ensure that those jobs remain in the local area.
I invited the Minister for Employment Esther McVey visited Dymag to hear their exciting growth plans from company Managing Director Chris Shelley and offer advice on schemes which will make it easier for them to grow and take on more staff and create apprenticeships.
After their expansion Dymag’s production will increase to thousands of carbon fibre wheels each year and the company plans to employ 150 staff with dozens of apprenticeships.
Dymag are a fantastic, growing local manufacturer who produce world leading products. I want to help them achieve the investment they need to expand and create more local jobs and apprenticeships. Helping local businesses to create more local jobs forms a key part of part of my long term plan for our community. I am working to ensure that the conditions are right for Dymag to continue to base themselves in Wiltshire to keep them employing a local workforce. Wiltshire has so much more potential and should and can be a hub of business. I am standing to be our next MP to champion our area and push for investment to be made here rather than elsewhere.
Minister for Employment, Esther McVey commented after the visit “It was a pleasure to meet such a dynamic business and workforce forging the way in new technology for the automotive industry and creating more jobs for the local area. Since 2010 there are another 12,100 more people in work, 2,650 more apprentices and across the South West another 100,000 new businesses. As part of the Conservative’s long-term economic plan, we will continue to nurture and support local business.”
