Birmingham MP pays visit to Hockley Printer

Birmingham MP pays visit to Hockley Printer

Pinstripe Print Ltd, based in Hockley, Birmingham, recently welcomed Birmingham Selly Oak MP Steve McCabe, to its premises.

Mr McCabe joined management & staff to tour the site, learning how a modern print business works & contributes to the local economy.

Following the visit, Mr McCabe said:
"It was a real pleasure to visit Pinstripe Print Group and not only learn more about the work they do but also about the challenges facing the print industry more widely. There are clearly real issues for the print industry and Nigel Lyon, Managing Director of Pinstripe Print Group, told me that high energy prices, uncertainty surrounding Brexit and increasing raw material costs are all putting pressure on the industry. Nigel's team are highly-skilled and I was particularly impressed by the Food Operating Guides they produce for pubs and restaurants throughout the country. After my visit I will be looking out for more ways that I can support the print industry, helping it to thrive."

Following the MP's tour, Nigel Lyon, Pinstripe Print's Managing Director, said:
"We were delighted by the visit; it gave us the ideal opportunity to show Steve how we work and to discuss the opportunities and challenges that affect not just ourselves, but the print industry as a whole.

We also had the opportunity to discuss how Government could better support the industry."
