Labour chief Ed Miliband in Stratford

Labour Party leader Ed Miliband was in Stratford last week to speak with apprentices at Kesslers International and its management.

His visit to the company – specialist designers and manufacturers of point of purchase displays and merchandising – covered talks on the economy, and the need for a plan for jobs and growth.

Kesslers International, located on the edge of the Olympic site, has a state-of-the-art, 130,000 sq ft manufacturing plant which runs round the clock and employs a total of 250 personnel.
