Two Gloucestershire companies will get an extra boost from Vince Cable’s first trip as Business Secretary to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Dr Cable will visit Cheltenham-based laundry business, Paragon, as they prepare to launch a new facility in Mussafah in Abu Dhabi, creating initially 120 jobs but rising to over 300 and with over £12m investment.
He will also meet with Gloucester safety footwear specialists, Footsure.
Steve Connell, NewGen’s Business Development Director, said:
“We pride ourselves on our commitment to ensuring our provision of trusted laundry services in the Middle East mirrors our success in the UK within the Paragon Family of Companies – delivering energy efficiency, cost-savings and unbeatable quality.”
