Business officially opens second factory in Burgess Hill after two-year Covid delay

A business that manufactures specialist reflective markings for emergency service vehicles celebrated the opening of its second factory in Burgess Hill.

PVL’s special event was attended by Mid Sussex MP Mims Davies, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Employment.

The factory in Victoria Road Industrial Estate actually opened its doors in 2020 but its official opening was rescheduled to this July because of the Covid pandemic.

Managing director and founder Nick Broom said: “It was an honour to welcome our local MP and celebrate our second factory.

"We’re rapidly approaching our 25th anniversary, and we’re proud to be market leaders with multiple awards under our belt and a proven track record.

“We even just enjoyed the best month in our history, and this visit is the icing on the cake just ahead of National Manufacturing Day on 7 July.”
