Nia Griffith MP joined Geraint Davies and local AMs at a campaign meeting called by the GMB to save the local Remploy factories

Addressing the meeting, Nia Griffith said

“Just at a time when we need more manufacturing jobs, it is madness to close factories and leave the employees join the back of the ever lengthening queues of workers chasing a diminishing pool of jobs. The products are excellent – with more investment in marketing, there is the potential to develop Remploy factories into very successful businesses. I am currently buying new office furniture from Remploy.”

Geraint Davies, MP for the Fforestfach area added

“ Just since Nia and I visited the Fforestfach factory a few months ago, I have promoted the products with big public sector purchasers like the university and helped fill the order books. Just think what proper investment in marketing could do.”
