TTE event continues Teesside's collaboration with government on Industrial Strategy

Teesside’s determination to play a key role in the government’s industrial strategy has continued this week, as one its specialist firms hosted a discussion event with the Department of Business.

Hosted the TTE Technical Training Group, prominent Industrial Strategy figure Andrew Battarbee led the discussion on Teesside’s role in UK industry and the importance of delivering a strategy that supports the area’s evolving technology-led businesses.

The event, which was chaired by TTE Managing Director Steve Grant, was attended by representatives from organisations including AV Dawson, the Materials Processing Institute, the Nortech Group, NEPIC and IMH Ltd.

The day formed part of the consultation process unveiled by Business Secretary Greg Clark in January, for which the Government is keen to engage with businesses and gather views and opinions on the future of UK industry.

Steve Grant, Managing Director of TTE, said: “Teesside continues to have a vital role to play in the future of UK industry and this meeting will have been a valuable part of the Government’s Industrial Strategy consultation.

“Industry is evolving on Teesside and contains companies making an important contribution to the UK economy through the development of technologies, application of skills, and the delivery of world-class products and services.

“The discussion also highlighted the important role of maintaining the creation of future generations of skilled workers through contemporary technical training that meets the requirements of employers and ensures companies in this area can remain competitive in global markets.”
