Valerie visits Chamberlin and Hill

Valerie visited Chamberlin and Hill’s local foundry in Chuckery on the 11th September during their annual open day. Dave Morgan and Gordon Stanley showed her round the foundry, explaining the production process and introducing her to members of staff as they worked. In fact, Gordon had only recently retired after a lifetime’s service in the company, and his connection with the firm is even older as his mother, father and uncles all worked for Chamberlin and Hill. Valerie was very encouraged by the positive news she heard from the Directors that the company’s order book was increasing despite the recession. Also, that the company had invested heavily in reducing the environmental impact of the foundry and facilitated an education programme for employees.
