JOB creation is one of the key factors in producing a flourishing modern, structured and imaginative economy.

It is never easy – which is why today’s news that a Huddersfield firm has won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise should be welcomed wholeheartedly.

Print company Leach Colour gets the accolade for producing a magnetic graphics display system.

As traditional industry continues to decline, this is exactly the sort of entrepreneurial spirit that must be shown to survive in the modern era.

We should be proud of Leach Colour and other companies busy forging a viable future.
