The visit to GWP

The BBC Today Programme was aired on the morning of Wednesday 18th March at 7.30am. Initially, BBC presenter, Mishal Husain was given a tour around GWP Group’s production site in Cricklade to become familiar with the business and the everyday processes of the company.

Mishal then spoke at length with GWP Group CEO, David Pedley, regarding the recovery of GWP Group over the previous years and the subsequent growth and development of the company.

Having visited a number of businesses across the South West, GWP’s strong performance during the last few years is a success story indicating the economic recovery remains on track.

A difficult economy

As discussed by David Pedley in the interview, GWP Group has seen a variety of changes over the period of economic instability, including much tougher trading conditions.

Being a good barometer of the manufacturing industry as a whole, the recent upturn in performance has been keenly felt at GWP, with plans for future growth and expansion already in place.
