Johnson Tiles

A big thank you to Stephen Dixon from Johnson Tiles, for showing me around the factory to see the Covid measures put in place and to learn about tile making in Stoke-on-Trent.

It is great to hear orders are now around 90% of what they were last year and that the furlough scheme helped save jobs and the business.

It is great to have the U.K. leading tile manufacturer in Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke and I look forward to promoting them down in Westminster.

Steve outlined the challenges and work going on around energy costs and efficiencies, anti dumping tariffs against China, a level playing field when competing with other countries and ensuring we get good Free Trade Deals.
