CMS Window Systems has given business experience and insights at a SME Parliamentary Reception in London, organised by BEIS, the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.
The Glasgow-based, UK leader in window, door and curtain walling designing, manufacturing and installing, was represented at the exclusive event, held at Portcullis House, by Chief Operating Officer, David Ritchie.
David was on hand to talk about how small-and-medium sized enterprises can be more innovative and productive, and reflect on the challenges to SME growth and scaling, and what government, the public and private sector is doing or can do to help.
BEIS say the reception was put together to assist the building of networks amongst MPs, ministers, influential business leaders and SMEs, with the chance for views to be shared, in order to help shape government policy that enables small business growth.
The invite is merely the latest major recognition for CMS Window Systems, who last year received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise and continually further their reputation for being one of Scotland’s quickest growing manufacturing businesses.
In regards to the SME Parliamentary Reception, David Ritchie expressed his delight at the invite, saying it is ‘crucial’ that ‘policyholders and businesses work closely together for the UK economy to prosper.’
“I really enjoyed the lively debate and very much hope that the contributions made by everyone representing the SME sector will be useful to policymakers,” he added.
