Introduced by local constituency MP Alec Shelbrooke, the Prime Minister spoke with tremendous passion on the topics of the day to local supporters, guests and JHS staff, then toured the JHS facility showing great interest in the story of JHS, which was started in 1965, from very humble beginnings in the home of the eponymous John Hornby Skewes and his wife Madge.

The company now offers a portfolio of over 4500 products, which are sold to over 2000 customers throughout the UK and Eire, contributes to the local economy with employment, and to the wider UK economy with its exports to over 85 overseas markets including the USA, Canada, Australasia, the countries of the European Union, and places as diverse as St Helena and The Falkland Islands.
