Prime Minister David Cameron officially opened personal protection equipment specialist JSP's new state-of-the-art industrial safety helmet manufacturing facility in Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire. JSP has invested m
JSP has invested more than £3m to create what the company says is the world's most advanced industrial safety helmet manufacturing line, which has a capacity of more than 4m helmets a year. JSP's new Evolution range of industrial safety helmets will be sold in over 90 countries around the globe.
The new range provides the platform for growth over the next 5-10 years, as well as future expansion of the workforce, including the planned introduction of new apprenticeship and graduate trainee schemes in 2012.
Said the prime minister: "With our economy today, we desperately need to rebalance it in favour of high-tech manufacturing and exports like this. It is heartening to see that the expansion has been made here in Oxfordshire and not somewhere else in the world.
"With our motor industry expanding here in the UK also, 'Made in Britain' is a label we can be proud of."
