High Peak MP Andrew Bingham visited Furness Vale firm Avanti Conveyors recently to see for himself how they have expanded both their manufacturing and exporting activity.

Avanti Conveyors is a world leader in conveyor systems and an international supplier – exporting to over 30 countries and with hundreds of installations all over the world.

Established in 1988 and based in Furness Vale, they have developed a reputation for technical excellence in their field of expertise and manufacture their complete machinery range locally.

Mr Bingham’s visit to the company followed an invite from Managing Director Simon Mander.

He was shown around the site and spoke to some of the staff, as well as discussing the expansion of the firm with Mr Mander.

Managing Director of Avanti Conveyors, Simon Mander, said: “Our staff have worked amazingly hard since the recession in building the business today and Andrew’s visit really cemented the importance of what they have built.”

Mr Bingham added: “I’m delighted to visit yet another manufacturing company based in the High Peak, who are bucking the current economic climate and expanding their business.

“Avanti and their staff have worked hard to get where they are now, and they demonstrate once again that manufacturing is certainly alive and well here in the High Peak.”
