The factory tour was followed by a presentation on the company and a discussion with the company’s senior management team where concerns around Brexit were discussed.

Ms Leadsom described the MJM Group “a fantastic, globally successful business”.
“MJM, as a big exporter around the world, are concerned about tariffs, no tariff barriers, access to global talent – all of which are very much on the Government’s radar. We are fully committed to getting a good deal as we leave the EU,” she said.
