Local MP impressed by Thornton Sports manufacturing facility

Thornton Sports are proud to have been visited recently by Andrew Stephenson, the Conservative MP for Pendle in Lancashire. Andrew actively campaigns for initiatives which support and assist UK based manufacturers, hence he was keen to find out more about his local
synthetic grass manufacturer.

During the visit Andrew met with Managing Director David Saxby, and was interested to hear about the prestigious sports projects we have been involved with, and our development of innovative surfaces and sustainable drainage systems.

Andrew also welcomed the opportunity to be given a tour of the synthetic grass manufacturing facility by Director, Bill Pomfret.  Each stage of the synthetic grass manufacturing process was on display, from start to finish. Through the backing process, Andrew also found out more about our unique synthetic grass backing system, which allows natural drainage of up to 10 times the minimum recommended rate.

David Saxby comments on the visit:

“We were delighted that Andrew was keen to come and meet with myself and the rest of the team. As a UK based manufacturer it was interesting to discuss with him potential developments which may support or promote the role companies like ourselves can play in the growth of the British economy. Andrew was very impressed with our facilities and our team were proud to show-case to him our skills and capabilities”.
