‘Being a business in Sandwell has so many advantages, from location to the unique local work ethic, and the wide range of business support services. One of the reasons that I became a Sandwell Business Ambassador is because I believe that local businesses should engage with, and support, the development of the local community as a location of choice for businesses, and I want to be involved in making that happen.’
