Supply chain partner FWB has been selected to appear in the 2016/17 edition of The Parliamentary Review.
With its September release now a key fixture in the political calendar, the main aim of The Parliamentary Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sectors. It also discusses how industry leaders have responded to challenges in the political and economic environment over the past year, with political commentary written by BBC presenter Andrew Neil.
FWB has been recognised as a leading figure in the Manufacturing and Services sector, and features alongside a small number of outstanding organisations in the General Manufacturing edition for 2016/17. The publication includes forewords from The Prime Minister The Rt Hon Theresa May, The Rt Hon Greg Clarke, and Terry Scuoler CBE, and is sent out to tens of thousands of leading policymakers including all MPs, Peers at the House of Lords and leaders from across the manufacturing and services sector. Its articles act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.
“We’re proud the government is taking a keen interest”
FWB’s Managing Director, Mr Paul Meehan, stated: “We’re really proud that the government are taking a keen interest in what FWB are achieving as a service provider and distributor to the manufacturing sector. Our ethos is now to ensure that the customer is at the centre of everything we do. We’ve listened internally, but now we are looking at what our customer base needs and what the problems are that our customers are facing. That will give us the opportunity to grow even further.”
The Prime Minister said: “This year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics. It was a year in which our economy continued to grow, as the Government followed its balanced plan to keep the public finances under control while investing to build a stronger economy.”
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, The Rt Hon Philip Hammond, commented: “It is only by making sustained increases to our productivity that we can deliver the higher wages that will increase living standards and fund the improvement of our public services.”
The Parliamentary Review’s publication is marked by gala events at the Palace of Westminster.
