The company, a global provider of sensors and industrial technology, recently relocated to Cheshire Business Park from Cheadle.

Mr Osborne was welcomed by Managing Director John Radford and formally opened the new office before enjoying a tour of the company’s high-tech sensor demonstration area and learning how Balluff products are helping to deliver improvements in the manufacturing process throughout the supply chain.

“I am delighted to see that yet another leading name is choosing Cheshire as its place to do business, and is creating more high-skilled jobs and opportunities, particularly for young people,” said Osborne.
Radford commented: "We’re immensely proud of our new customer support and training facility. It will provide a base for a varied programme of learning for customers from across the UK.

“These workshops enable our customers to become the experts on sensing solutions specific to their own industry and environment."

Mr Osborne was led round the demonstration area by Balluff Regional Managers Sally Wilder and Jack Hints.

"It was great to show Mr Osborne what we do here at Balluff,” said Wilder.

Hints added: “He was really interested in our products and well aware of some of our customers within the automotive, packaging and factory automation sectors.

“When I started here straight from university I never thought a few years later I would be meeting the Chancellor and showing him around our new training and exhibition area."
