North West Norfolk MP Henry Bellingham has paid tribute to the part that Lynn engineering firms have played in reducing unemployment in the area by more than 900 over the course of a year.
The MP was at North Lynn Industrial Estate on Friday visiting medium-sized engineering firms, Dodman Ltd and Sharp Systems Ltd, both located on Hamburg Way.
Dodman Ltd is a market leader in the supply of equipment and machinery to the food and pharmaceutical industry and Sharp Systems Ltd designs, manufactures and installs equipment for the food processing industry.
Mr Bellingham said: “King’s Lynn is now extremely fortunate to have an incredibly impressive cluster of increasingly advanced engineering businesses, including Dodman and Sharp. The cluster also includes Optima, who were favourably featured in a BBC News report this year. I would also like to pay tribute to these firms for the part they played in securing a very impressive annual reduction in unemployment of 908.”
