Company showcased to Council leader
The role that AJ Engineering plays in the local region has been showcased to Graham Leadbitter, leader of Moray Council.
Graham visited the firm’s Forres HQ in his role as Chair of both Economic Development and Chair of the Moray Economic partnership.
He said: “It’s important in both of these roles that I have a strong understanding of the business community across Moray. Therefore, it is important for me to visit businesses large and small across different sectors so I can see what they are contributing and what future plans they have. It’s also useful as I can see if there are any ways in which we can help.”
He added: “I had some understanding of what AJ Engineering does, particularly the visible projects such as the development at Forres Railway Station and its involvement in the Queensferry Crossing, but it’s always useful to make a visit on site and find out more about the company. AJE has an exceptional record in engaging with young people and developing the young workforce and supporting skills development in Moray.”
Alan James: “It was great for Graham to visit us to glean a more thorough understanding of what we do at AJE. It was useful to have the meeting and discuss the developments we are making within the company but also the challenges that we face. He was very welcome, and we enjoyed giving him an insight into the company.”
