Operations Manager David Mehaffey gave a short presentation about the background and growth of the company, and explained the various types of products the company manufactures to assist the mobility of disabled children and adults.

A tour of the factory enabled the visitors to get a real insight into the design and production processes, and the event was completed with refreshments and a question and answer session involving Leckey’s Managing Director James Leckey, Operations Manager David Mehaffey and Head of HR Beverley Copeland.
