MP for Buckingham and Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, visited ercol on Friday 11th November.  He spent several hours having the full tour of the works, seeing all the stages involved in making a piece of ercol furniture – from machining, timber bending and fabric cutting, to assembly and polishing.

Mr Bercow has also nominated ercol for the “Made in Britain” project by the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group – each MP has been asked to highlight one company within their constituency that showcases UK manufacturing.  The Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group exists to encourage the exchange of knowledge and understanding between Parliament and the manufacturing industries and to raise the profile of manufacturing both inside and outside of Parliament.  Three cheers to that!
