The news was noted by local MP Mark Menzies, who spoke about the company in the Commons, saying: "I am delighted to see Ameon thriving and choosing to invest its future in our young people. It is fantastic to see a local business benefitting from the construction boom in the North West, and that so many of these jobs will help young people gain experience and skills in a sector that is booming."

Robin Lawson, Ameon managing director, said: "It’s pleasing to get the support of Mark Menzies, for what is a major work creation plan, and despite our reluctance to sound triumphalist, it has only come about because of investment back into the business, and a clear vision for our future.

"That’s how we’ve managed to ride the economic waves in our sector over the past decade, and it’s why we are in a position now, despite the impact of Covid-19, to create employment opportunities for more people to play a part in our story going forward."
