Tratos Welcomes Treasury Chief Secretary

Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Elizabeth Truss MP, met with senior figures from global cable-maker Tratos at its state-of-the-art production facility in Knowsley during her visit to Merseyside on Wednesday (Jan 24).

Former Justice Secretary Ms Truss toured the factory before joining Tratos CEO Dr Maurizio Bragagni for lunch where they discussed issues Dr Bragagni has been campaigning around, including his push to drive standards beyond current CPR requirements, to improve cable safety in buildings.

He talked through his Safer Structures initiative which argues for a tougher minimum standard – and better standards enforcement – for fire safety cable.

UK resident Dr Bragagni, who is running for the Italian Senate with a remit to support Italians working abroad, also spoke with Ms Truss about the anticipated economic impact of the fourth industrial revolution, his company’s investment in manufacturing infrastructure and the introduction of the Tratos Academy to enhance professional development for staff.  

Said Dr Bragagni: “I very much enjoyed the meeting: Ms Truss was extremely interested in what we are doing here, the growth-focused structure of our business, our commitment to staff and the campaign for safer cable.”
