John Pendleton, managing director of Rosti Automotive in Pickering and Made in Yorkshire President, then gave a presentation about Rosti Automotive because a tour around their impressive factory. Delegates were shown several parts of the plastics factory, with workers on machines giving them demonstrations.
The buzz of Rosti Automotive was apparent as soon as the group stepped out onto the factory floor. The delegates were warmly received by the relevant department heads - the only complaint was that we couldnt stay longer! Alex McDonnell, of Hows Business said, This morning has been very successful. The venue was perfect and everyone who came enjoyed it. I think its very important that manufacturers feel like there is a community they can get involved in.
