In a recent visit, 1 August 2023, to the STRUMIS Ltd office, Amanda Solloway, MP for Derby North, recognised the firm’s determination for growth and was shown the innovative software solutions that are being designed for the constructional steel industry.
Amanda Solloway MP said: "It was lovely to meet the Strumis team and learn about their global leading work delivering software solutions to the steel industry. Following a presentation about the company, I had a tour of their offices and met all of the staff many who have been there for over twenty years. Strumis is a testament to the very best of British software development and it is fantastic to see yet another global leader in innovation taking advantage of the opportunities Derby has to offer."
Stuart Thompson, CEO of STRUMIS Ltd said: “It was a pleasure to host Amanda Solloway MP, along with David Moore from the BCSA, at our Head Office in Derby. The interest that Amanda showed in both STRUMIS and Workstations Specialist was very well received. We are immensely proud of our Derby heritage; it is the foundation of our global business. We will continue to invest in our people and in our products in order to best serve our customers and the constructional steel industry. In this ever more testing business environment, it is reassuring to know that we have the support of both our industry association, the BCSA, and our elected member of Parliament.”
David Moore, Chief Executive Officer of BCSA said: “I would like to personally thank Ms Holloway for taking the time out of her busy constituency schedule to visit STRUMIS.
“At a time of considerable challenge in the steelwork construction sector, not least driven by inflation and energy pricing fluctuations, the work of STRUMIS is very valuable across the steelwork sector in delivering efficiency and productivity. It was great to be able to showcase this value, especially given the wider context of manufacturing in the current climate.”
