Q. Is being a Yorkshire & Humber-headquartered company important to you and why?

Q. What advantages have you gained from being based in the north?
A. The North offers an excellent and committed workforce and we are immensely proud of all our staff. The manufacturing sector throughout the North is the envy of the UK. In addition, the work-life balance we have in the North and the benefits that brings to business are unrivaled.
Q. What are your ambitions for your business and how will this be achieved?
A. After the challenges and growth we have seen through the pandemic, the business is going from strength to strength with a recent acquisition and the amalgamation of two sites this year. Our commitment to innovation and sustainability alongside new investment in our product offering will make this another year of exciting challenges for PFF Group.
Q. How do you see the economic outlook now?
A. It is a challenging outlook with strong inflation across the UK manufacturing sector and cost pressures increasing daily. However, with challenges come opportunities and the key is identifying them and making the most of them.
