Construction minister backs Hewden's 'NASE' team

Ian Lucas, Construction Minister and Labour MP for Wrexham has paid a visit to his local Hewden depot to meet two future faces of the construction industry; National Account Sales Executives (NASEs) Chris Blake and Dawn Spencer.

During the afternoon, Mr Lucas learnt how their role is helping Hewden to support major construction projects both in the local area and nationally and also talked to the team about the encouraging signs of recovery in the region and across the sector.

He commented: "We do appreciate the investment because we need to bring more young talent into construction. Even after the most difficult couple of years there's still a huge amount of impressive new builds going on and that's fantastic to see. The construction industry has a lot to offer young people in the current climate."

Hewden Head of Customer Relations Brian Jones said: "Despite the tough operating climate and at a time when the construction industry continues to feel the effects of the economic downturn, we have continued to invest by bringing young people in to our business. These new recruits have brought with them some really fresh ideas and this meeting gave us an ideal opportunity to share our knowledge with the minister."
