The Radio France Coverage

The interview was conducted by presenters Franck Mathevon (Radio France) and Phillipe Bernard (Le Monde Newspaper) who believed GWP to be a good barometer of the health of the UK economy.

Interviewing various employees from GWP Group, the questioning was largely focused on the current economic state of the UK, as well as personal experiences in relation to job security and employment.

Happy customers of GWP Group

In our industry, there has been a jump in activity in the last two years. Companies appear to be growing, and there are jobs. People recruited. And even when talking to suppliers, they are clearly getting busier.

Adele Neal | Commercial Manager, GWP Packaging

A bell-weather for the economy

Following the economic crisis in 2008, GWP Group recorded a drop in sales of 20% over a short period of time.

Whilst performance has seen improved dramatically, David Pedley, CEO of GWP Group believes that the UK is on the path to recovery, partly thanks to George Osbourne’s budget statement.

Happy customers of GWP Group

I think the Conservatives have done a good job on the economy. They have addressed the major issues that have plagued the country for years. I am very pleased that the Minister of Finance George Osborne has not promised too much reckless spending in the last budget, it is to his credit.

David Pedley | CEO, GWP Group
