Neil and I were impressed when we visited Makita's HQ in Milton Keynes last October, and while there we were shown a video on what goes on in their manufacturing plant in Telford. As you'd expect, it's all very slick.
Well, Makita are set to inject new jobs into the economy by boosting their workforce in Telford. The Shropshire Star Newspaper is reporting that Makita are transferring manufacturing from Japan and China to Telford's £1.3 million Hortonwood extension.
Great news for Makita and great news for the job market in Shropshire.
