Darwen Terracotta and Faience appears alongside Prime Minister Theresa May in the 2016/17 Parliamentary Review. The company was formed by Jon Wilson and Steve Allen two years ago, saving skilled jobs when another company laid off some employees. Since then the company has gone from strength-to-strength.

The Parliamentary Review was established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, and is now a key fixture in the political calendar. Darwen Terracotta features alongside the Prime Minister and other outstanding organisations in a document that looks back on the year in industry and Westminster. The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector.

“It has been a whirlwind two years, since starting the business. We have now grown to 36 employees, doubled manufacturing capacity and begun exporting. We hope our success, shown through the Parliamentary Review, is a beacon to others in construction manufacturing,” commented Jon Wilson.

From restoration work, through prestige new build projects and on to art installations, the company continues to experience rising demand for their terracotta and faience products due to its design versatility and durability as a building material.

The Parliamentary Review is sent to over half a million leading policymakers. The articles act as a blueprint for success and a template for reform. The Prime Minister commented that ‘this year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics’ and this is reflected in the articles from leading journalists and best-practice representatives alike.

The PM’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, who was recently appointed Chairman of the Review, said ‘it has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.’

The Parliamentary Review’s director Daniel Yossman concurred, saying ‘Darwen Terracotta and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year’s Review possible. Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy.

It’s always a real joy to hear from policymakers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has had an effect on their thinking. It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.’
