Axion’s Commercial Operations Manager, Judith Clayman and Axion Director Roger Morton, told of how impressed Nick Clegg was by the ‘innovative work’ carried out at the Trafford Park plant to recover metals and high-grade plastics from end-of-life vehicles and re-use them in new cars such as the BMW Mini.
