(UK) - Firm's Barrowford manufacturing facility plays host to the Duke of Kent.

The Duke visited on November 7th in order to unveil a commemorative plaque officially opening the newly refurbished manufacturing site. 

The Royal visit came at the end of a successful year for acdc. The company has made considerable investments into their manufacturing facility and recorded a boost in production as a result. 

acdc's recent high profile contract win to supply £5 million of lighting to Muscat airport in Oman was a project of particular interest to His Royal Highness. 

Commenting on the visit, acdc CEO Gareth Frankland said: “This visit represents the hard work of everyone at acdc. It’s a real opportunity for us to celebrate our success and the major steps we have taken as a company.” 

The Duke received a short presentation by the board of directors and was given a guided tour of Innovation Works, giving an insight into how acdc products are conceived and developed. 

HRH was impressed with the state-of-the art facilities on the shop floor and clearly enjoyed chatting with staff.  He described the facility as 'absolutely fascinating' and wished acdc every success in the future.
