“We became a member of Halton Chamber because of the range of services on offer to help our business on a day to day basis, but also to develop and grow. One of Halton Chamber’s strengths is the staff. They have developed a one to one relationship with us and we are treated not as a number but as an individual company with specific needs - we have the support we need, when we need it.”
