HydraForce Limited was delighted to host a visit from the U.S. Embassy last month, to review how recent changes in working life have benefited global organisations.
The visit that took place on Wednesday 23rd March, was hosted by Jon Bradley, Managing Director; Ian Trennan, Head of Human Resources, and Quality Manager Ali Mohammed, who provided a tour of the UK facility and a company overview and history, to the group:
“We were very honoured to welcome senior members from the Commercial Affairs department of the US Embassy, London, to HydraForce Ltd,” said Ian Trennan, Head of Human Resources.
“The visit was an important opportunity to demonstrate the strength of our diverse workforce and culture, our innovation, and our continued business success and growth plans.”
The U.S Embassy's visit was also an important opportunity to demonstrate how changes in working patterns due to the pandemic, have enabled the UK and US to work closely together as a global workforce.
The event formed part of a visit to Birmingham by the US Chargé d'Affaires of the United States to the United Kingdom, Ambassador Phillip T. Reeker, hosted by the Greater Birmingham Transatlantic Chamber of Commerce.
The attendees from the U.S Embassy were also given site tours by two Chamber members who have trade links with the United States. Attendees from the Embassy included Rosemary Gallant (Minister Counsellor for Commercial Affairs), Gus Franklyn-Bute (Senior Regional Investment Advisor) and Kristina Schaferova (Commercial Specialist).
This visit to HydraForce follows a site visit from the U.S. International Trade Commission and British American Business in 2019.
