Local MP Visits Origin HQ
Whilst at the Manufacturing Awards 2014, Sales & Marketing Director, Ben Brocklesby, met High Wycombe MP, Steve Baker.
Taking place in the House of Commons, the awards are created to celebrate innovative, efficient British engineering and manufacturing. Naturally, when the two met, the topic of conversation progressed onto Origin and its operations.
Steve Baker was so impressed with Origin, its story and its lean manufacturing process that he was intruiged to learn more. Ben invited Steve to a tour round Origin's HQ in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, which ended up taking place in May 2014.
Steve was shown round the factory, and whilst this was talking place, Ben was telling him about the scale of operations. Discussing everything from stock control and manufacturing through to delivery and logistics, no stone was left unturned.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable day for everyone... Check out the video below to see some of the tour's highlights.
