On 21 October Teresa visited the Belvedere site of manufacturing company Jablite and selected their Jablite Dynamic Insulation to represent her Erith and Thamesmead constituency in the ‘Made by Britain’ campaign.
The ‘Made by Britain’ campaign asks MPs to nominate a product made in their constituency to promote British manufacturing excellence. ‘Made by Britain’ is being billed as a virtual Crystal Palace – recalling the Great Exhibition of 1851 that celebrated Victorian Britain’s industrial triumphs. But instead of filling giant exhibition halls, the selected products will be displayed online, via an interactive map. Teresa’s nomination can be viewed here.
“Jablite is a fantastic example of an innovative green company and I was delighted to be shown round their Belvedere site in my constituency.
“The insulation they manufacture could have a positive impact on the quality of our housing stock and help to reduce carbon emissions and energy bills. That’s why I’ve decided to nominate their product for the Associate Parliamentary Manufacturing Group’s ‘Made by Britain’ competition.
“Jablite Dynamic Insulation has already been recognised by the International Green Awards, and I hope their inclusion in the ‘Made by Britain’ campaign will help spread the word about this great example of local manufacturing.”
Richard Lee, Jablite Managing Director, said:
“We have been working hard to innovate and develop new products; it takes commitment and tenacity from everyone in Jablite to create exciting new products like Jablite Dynamic Insulation.
“So, we are all really pleased that Teresa took the time to come and visit us and that she picked Jablite Dynamic Insulation as her nomination for the ‘Made by Britain’ campaign.
“We are not a huge company with large R&D budgets, but we have a great team of people and that is what really sets us apart, we are full of ideas and enthusiasm. I am sure Jablite Dynamic Insulation will be the first of many product innovations that we will be bringing into the marketplace”.
