Sir Keir Starmer paid tribute to Window Supply Company and its work with renewables and home insulation when he paid a visit to the trade fabricator’s 105,000sqft West Lothian HQ last week.

The Labour leader was at the factory along with Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar and Bathgate and Linlithgow Kirsteen Sullivan to see how the company had grown to take the claim of Scotland’s biggest PVCu trade fabricator, now employing over 180 people.

Sir Keir told workers at the factory: “I’m here because I want to put forward our plan for growing the economy which is the single most important thing for Scotland, to make sure that living standards go up here, that people feel better off living here, and that we secure the jobs of the future.

“Part of that is the 10-year project for research and development, which will be a game changer in Scotland when it comes to the energy sector, to renewables and the insulation of houses across Scotland, and we are seeing some of that here today in this factory. “

Anas Sarwar added: “Brand Scotland is a key part of our economic growth plan for Scotland, and a key part of our economic growth plan for the UK. By electing a Labour government, we will make sure we change the Scotland office so that it becomes Scotland’s window to the world.“

Martin Linden, the company’s COO, later said: “We were delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Sir Keir, Anas and Kirsteen to Window Supply Company to tell them about the business, providing an insight into the jobs we have created here in West Lothian and nationally through our trade counter network.

“We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved to date which was clear for our visitors to see today. I hope we are supported by the next elected government to continue to grow in our sector.”
