MP for East Dunbartonshire Jo Swinson paid a visit to Dieselec Thistle for a tour of the factory and to meet the staff.
Commenting, Jo said:
“It has been five years since I lasted visited Dieselec Thistle, and it was great to see that the company is still going from strength to strength.
“Its generators are critical to the smooth functioning of companies and institutions across the country. In particular, the backup power it provides to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital could quite literally save lives in the event of a power outage.
“I enjoyed meeting again with Brian and the team, and wish them continued success in the coming years.
Commenting, Brian Muirie, Sales Director at Dieselec Thistle, said:
“We were delighted to welcome Jo back to the factory for the first time since 2013, to let her see how the company has evolved over the past few years.
“We discussed the increasing importance of power resilience and how that’s fuelling demand for standby generators, with more reliance on electricity and increasing pressure on the national grid, interruptions in power in power supply are more costly than ever.
“The investment in a standby generator is therefore critical, particularly for hospitals, financial institutions and utility companies.
“It is always good to see our local MP taking an interest in local businesses such as ours.”
