The BBC came to film in our factory based in Hastings for the second time in just over a year. Our chairman, Roger Kemp was interviewed by BBC South East Today’s political editor Helen Catt, where he shared comments about Focus SB’s strategy in the event of a potential ‘no deal’ Brexit.

Roger was interviewed on the ‘factory floor’ on 11th March, where Catt was able to view the manufacturing of our sockets and switches. Our chairman Roger explained how the company expected to be impacted by Brexit and what preparations were being made for a ‘deal’ or ‘no deal’ Brexit scenario. He commented: “I think for us all we’ve managed to do is to do a bit of stockpiling, get some goods in, make sure we’re not held up. I think we’re more isolated than some because we don’t have a big market in Europe. The fallout for us will be what happens to the value of Sterling because that will affect the cost of our imports.”

Broadcast on the 13th of March on the early evening news. If you missed it you can view it here from our Youtube channel.
