BUSINESS Minister Dr Vince Cable met apprentices and graduates when he visited GE Aviation at Bishop's Cleeve yesterday afternoon.
Dr Cable was taken on a tour by GE Aviation's site leader Alan Jones and the president of GE UK, Mark Elborne, stopping to chat to employees.
He discussed the state of the business, which provides jet and turboprop engines and components and the company's extensive apprentice and graduate schemes.
Dr Cable said: "GE Aviation reminds us why manufacturing remains one of our national success stories and lies at the heart of the Government's industrial strategy."
