MP backs Borough business

Borough, an injection moulding and chrome-plating business, is celebrating 50 years since chrome plating its first plastic component for the original Mini.

In recognition of its achievement the Essex based business, which plays an important role in the global automotive supply chain, recently welcomed David Amess, the Conservative member of parliament for Southend West to its Progress Road, Leigh-on-Sea facility.

On hand to meet Sir David, was Borough managing director David Coombes, sales director David Brereton and finance director Martin Smith. A discussion in the boardroom highlighted Sir David’s passion for British business and in particular, quiet success stories like Borough.

Sir David commented, ‘With all the noise about Brexit, it is easy to forget the success stories like Borough. A third generation, family-owned manufacturing business, playing a small but critical part in the UK automotive sector.

‘They have battled through recessions and continued to innovate and invest in the future of the business. It is always humbling to witness companies like this, engaged with their employees, working hard to grow and succeed to build a better future for everyone within the business.’
