The Chamber welcomes new Patrons

West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce three more businesses who have become patron members.

Adams Foodservice, PIB Insurance and Arup have all upgraded to the Chamber’s highest level of membership.

Bradford-based Adams Foodservice is a family-run food and drink giant servicing the country’s hospitality trade while PIB Insurance, located in Leeds, is a national leader in its field. Finally, Arup, which employs hundreds of people in the region across its offices in Leeds and York, is a global collective of designers, consultants and experts with a focus on the built environment.

The developments come hot on the heels of Teesside International Airport becoming patrons earlier this year.

James Mason, chief executive of West & North Yorkshire Chamber, said: “We are delighted to welcome such impressive companies to our patron tier of membership.

“The work these firms do is cutting edge and the firm is so well-respected in the region. We look forward to working with them even more closely as we strive to make the region everything it can be as a place to do business.”

Mohammed Kola, Finance Director at Adams Foodservice, said: “We are delighted to be a patron member of the West and North Yorkshire Chambers. We have already experienced the phenomenal work the Chamber does both nationally and internationally.

“As patron members we hope to add value by helping promote the growth of local businesses and the surrounding communities.”

Arup’s upgrade comes at an exciting time for the business as it prepares to relocate its Leeds offices to state-of-the-art new premises in the city’s Wellington Place development.

Tom Bridges, the firm’s Leeds and York Office leader said: “Arup’s vision is to collaborate with our clients and partners, using imagination, technology and rigour to shape a better world. That is why we are proud to be a patron member of the West and North Yorkshire Chamber.

“Our teams work with local businesses and regional partners across our City Regions to reshape and generate our communities, helping to influence a greener, healthier and more prosperous future for Yorkshire.”

A spokesperson for PIB Insurance said: “We are delighted to be patrons of West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce.

“Supporting businesses at a local level is very important to us, as is the commitment of the Chamber in the region.

“We are pleased to be listed amongst other businesses and look forward to working with you all.”
