Pirelli Carlisle hosts Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant
Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant for Cumbria, an Honorary Officer appointed by The Queen on the advice of the Prime Minister, Claire Hensman, enjoyed a visit to Pirelli’s factory in Carlisle earlier this week. Pirelli’s northern base employs more than 800 people and Mrs Hensman was accompanied on a tour of the Cumbria-based factory by her husband Peter and Professor Joe Hendry, Carlisle City Council leader. Alan Wilson, Pirelli Carlisle’s engineering manager, hosted the group on their tour.
Following the visit, Wilson commented: “Our visitors were surprised by the scale of the Carlisle operation and were impressed by the technical complexity and prestigious customer portfolio. Mrs Hensman expressed particular interest in the Pirelli apprenticeship programme and the opportunities available to local young people.”
