This year’s CV Show at the NEC in April saw leading commercial vehicle bodybuilder Paneltex play host to a visit by Stoke-on -Trent Labour MP, Rob Flello Chair, All-Party Parliamentary Freight Transport Group. As part of his SMMT organised visit to the Paneltex exhibition stand, Managing Director Chris Berridge, who gave the MP a full and comprehensive guided tour of the vehicles on display, greeted Rob Flello.
Commenting on this parliamentary visit, Paneltex’s Chris Berridge said, "The commercial vehicle and bodybuilding industry has been through tough times over the last few years and still faces some serious challenges ahead especially with regards the imminent changes to type approval. It is important that we get these points across when we’re given such an opportunity to do so. I am sure that Rob Flello was impressed by the fact that, at our four UK manufacturing factories, we employ a large number of people; making top quality British built products. We were delighted that we were invited to assist the SMMT with the hosting of this parliamentary visit and sincerely hope that Rob Flello went away suitably impressed."
