Insight to future forms part of Princess Anne visit to county firm

Evesham Editorial 3rd Mar, 2023   0

HER Royal Highness the Princess Royal paid a visit to Worcester-based manufacturer GL on the Great Western Business Park.

GL has a long association with Princess Anne, having previously been awarded the Princess Royal Training Award in 2016, but the visit marked the first time she had visited its headquarters.

During the afternoon, the Princess toured the company’s recently launched E-home and spoke to staff about the all-electric solutions on offer to help house builders achieve carbon neutral homes.

The visit also provided an opportunity for GL to highlight its flexible working policy, which encourages staff with other responsibilities, such as working mothers to progress in their careers.

Managing director Anthony Ottway said: “I’ve been fortunate enough to meet the Princess Royal on several occasions and just as I remembered she was very charming and interested in what we do.

“It was an absolute honour and privilege to welcome her to GL.”
