On Friday 14 March, Kevan visited Komatsu at Birtley.

Whilst there, Kevan listened to a presentation about the company and the work that goes on at Birtley, and then went on a tour of the factory shop floor. He said, “It was a number of years since I had visited the factory, so it was very interesting to come back to see for myself the work goes on at this very important local employer.”
