It was a privilege to welcome Harriett Baldwin MP, the Minister for Defence Procurement, to our Tyne engine overhaul display on her visit to DSEI yesterday.She took time out to discuss with our Sales Director, Campbell Archibald, the benefits of disposal equipment being overhauled by Alba Power and therefore adding value and sustainability. The Minister also commended us for our growing apprentice programme, commitment to legacy units, assisting DE&S efforts and our long-term support of disposed assets.
We also discussed, alongside Leafield, the extended support we could offer and received thanks and praise from the Minister for our efforts.
