Philip Hammond, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, today visited Tension Control Bolts Ltd with his local Conservative party candidate Andrew Atkinson. Both the Tories and Labour are fighting it out for the Wrexham parliamentary constituency seat in the 2017 general election.
Mr Hammond and Mr Atkinson were given a tour of the TCB factory, learning about the unique environmentally friendly Greenkote® coating, and later the Chancellor himself was given a chance to install a few M20 TCB bolts in demonstration steel using a shear wrench.
Mr Atkinson said of the visit: “We have some incredible businesses on our industrial estate, it was a pleasure to tour the business and to hear about how TCB is trading all over the world from its Wrexham base. “
