BOSSES at a leading accident management company have pledged to continue attracting – and retaining – skilled young people.
Ai chief executive David Sandhu, and commercial director Chris Shaw met with Blackpool North and Cleveleys MP Paul Maynard to discuss a number of issues including how to keep trained staff in the Blackpool area.
Mr Sandhu said: “It was useful to be able to show Paul around our facilities, including the opportunity to demonstrate our state-of-the-art IT and workflow systems which are some of the most modern in the industry.
“Our investment in our campus illustrates the importance we attach to being in Blackpool. Our top local priorities are to improve education standards and attract non tourism-related investment into the area.”
The firm has taken on 100 new members of staff in the past 12 months.
Mr Maynard said: “The visit was a valuable opportunity to understand Ai’s business in more detail. We share similar views about the economic needs of Blackpool and we would love to have more fast-growing businesses like Ai in this part of the world offering good careers to local people. I look forward to working with David and the team to ensure the area is given a fair hearing in both the county and in Westminster.”
