John Spellar

Best wishes to our local MP John Spellar, who’s retiring from parliament. John has been the Warley and Smethwick MP since 1992 and a great supporter of manufacturing in the constituency and A&M.

John opened our Park Rose site in 2015 aA&Ms in 2022 to meet new apprentices.

Were half a mile from the site of Bouton & Watt’s Smethwick Engine, built in 1779 and the world’s oldest working steam engine, now on display at ThinkTank in Birmingham. This area has nearly 250 years of industry and 14.3% of the jobs are still in manufacturing.

We look forward to John’s successor as MP continuing to support manufacturing.
