MORE than 30 business leaders from Yorkshire and Humber have toured the Prince of Wales Road plant of heavy engineer DavyMarkham.

The visit was as part of an industry networking event, organised by the Engineering Employers’ Federation.

Production director John Watson, who has worked for the company for 22 years, told visitors: “Four years ago the working practices of the company were entrenched in the ’70s but communication and engagement with the whole workforce has been central to successfully turning things around.”

Andy Tuscher, EEF north regional director, said the firm had strong leadership, but changes had involved staff from all areas of the business.
