Russell Roof Tiles recognised as leading manufacturer

Andrew Hayward is the managing director of Russell Roof Tiles

Russell Roof Tiles has been recognised as a leading manufacturer in the UK, after being handpicked to appear in the 2020 Parliamentary Review.

Featured businesses, which have all demonstrated outstanding contribution to their sector, are invited to share and promote best practice, with the strategic goal of raising standards.

Russell Roof was selected to provide industry insight and knowledge. The firm is currently the first and only roof tile manufacturer to provide expert commentary in The Parliamentary Review.

By placing policy discussion into the hands of large and small organisations across the country, The Parliamentary Review moves away from the “Westminster bubble” to get to the heart of the issues that matter most to businesses. Jointly chaired by Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett, the Review’s non-partisan approach facilitates policy development driven by those who are most affected by it.

Lord Pickles commented that as Britain undergoes changes, it is “essential that politicians have a firm understanding of the challenges with which British organisations must contend.”

In her foreword for The Parliamentary Review, the Secretary of State for International Trade, Elizabeth Truss, said: “commerce and free exchange are the engine room of prosperity and social mobility” and that she is “determined to tackle the forces who want to hold that back”.

The Review follows an exceptional year of investment for Russell Roof Tiles. The team enhanced quality across the business by utilising the latest innovations in manufacturing, upgrading its technology and equipment and introducing new sustainable initiatives. It also invested in staff retention and upskilling its workforce to support the current skills crisis in construction.
