Witney MP Robert Courts toured the Rooflight Company factory in Shipton-under-Wychwood as part of his campaign to champion local businesses.

The employee-owned business is an award-winning designer and manufacturer of high-quality rooflights with sites in Shipton and Bourton-on-the-Water.

It designs and manufactures rooflights for pitched and flat roofs, in traditional and modern styles.

Mr Courts said: “It was a pleasure to visit the Rooflight Company in Shipton-under-Wychwood. The business is a significant local success story and I look forward to working with it moving forward as it expands and seizes the opportunities of exporting to new countries around the world.”

The Rooflight Company is going through an exciting period of growth, and we are proud to be leading the way both as a local employer, and as an industry innovator.”
