Wonderful Stadco News
Every six months or so I like to call in on Stadco Powys of Llanfyllin, a specialist low volume producer of car parts. 18 months ago it was a very depressing visit. The company was announcing a workforce reduction to around 40, with the possibility of losing the Stadco presence in Llanfyllin altogether. Everyone involved was desperate not to see that happen. When I called the week after being elected as MP for Montgomeryshire, prospects were brighter and there were green shoots pushing through. Well today, Stadco Powys is booming. Well over 150 work at the plant and its buzzing. This is fantastic news for the whole of North Montgomeryshire. And its not the only good news story on the jobs front that I heard of today. But that will have to wait for now.
