"It gave value to people that had worked in Fords – made them feel they were worth something.”

“This has helped me move forward, realising that I may have talents for other job opportunities that have been pointed out to me by my peers, and also the skills I have are very much sought after by the local community.”

"It was a superb production, thought-provoking and beautifully acted. It was a truly authentic way of commemorating the 600th anniversary of Agincourt and I thoroughly enjoyed the performance."

Our projects past and present
March 2017 - June 2018
Planes, helicopters and the iconic Transit van – one small site in Southampton has produced them all. In 2013, the factory closed its doors and a high-tech logistics park has risen in its place bringing different kinds of jobs for a different kind of future.
