Canadian-owned manufacturer, Blachford UK, which makes composite laminates, says that it has created more than 20 new full-time roles at its site in Holmewood, Derbyshire.

The company says that it has a ‘booming order book’.

‘There are challenges, but I believe we should face these head on and with positivity,’ said Jason Lippitt, MD. ‘Our parent company fully supports us and sees its UK arm as being central to delivering solutions across Europe […] There are many other companies like Blachford who are doing well, however we just hear the disaster stories right now. We need to move forward, celebrate success and send the message to Europe and the world that Britain’s manufacturing sector is in business and doing well and will continue to do well regardless of Brexit or the pandemic.’
