Wealden MP Nus Ghani recently visited Ashdown Audio Visual on the Bellbrook Industrial Estate in Uckfield.
An audio visual design, supply and installation company, Ashdown AV provide services across the South East of England to a range of customers customers, including local schools, charities and universities.
Most recently, they provided the lighting for the Uckfield Business Awards.
Nus Ghani said: “It was great to visit a local, family-run business like Ashdown AV to chat with the team there about what I can do to help our SMEs thrive in Wealden.
“Our local businesses are the backbone of the local economy, and Ashdown AV are a great example of highly skilled Wealden businesses making a name for themselves across the entire South East.
“As a Minister in the Department for Transport, I have been working closely on the Year of Engineering project, aiming to get more young men and women to consider engineering as a career path, and I was delighted that the team at Ashdown AV shared their experiences with apprenticeships and getting the next generation involved.
“I will continue to push to get more East Sussex students into engineering as I visit schools all over Wealden, backing local businesses to hire local people.”
