Mechan’s jacks were making national headlines again yesterday, alongside the prime minister, David Cameron and his deputy, Nick Clegg.
The duo was in the West Midlands at Birmingham’s Soho Depot to announce a £9 billion package of investment to the rail industry from 2014. Mechan is pleased to hear it will include the electrification of the line from our home city of Sheffield to London, vastly reducing journey times.
Throughout the press conference, Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg were positioned conveniently in front of an older set of our jacks that were still looking as good as the day they left our factory.
