8 December 2009 16:58pm
M&A's new HQ, offices and workshops were officially opened on 4th November 2009 by Scarlets Rugby Commercial Director and Wales international Rupert Moon.
The building stands on a future-proof two-acre site at Thornton, Milford Haven and incorporates a suite of offices, large workshop and design facilities.
Cutting the ribbon across the reception doors to the impressive new building, Rupert commented, "This is a great day for Pembrokeshire and for Wales. M&A Engineering is one of Wales' best and a world leader in its field."
Local MP Stephen Crabb also visited the new site and was more than impressed with M&A's investment in the county. "It's great to see a skills-based engineering company investing in its market and in Pembrokeshire, M&A is a real Welsh success story." The company has injected almost £1.5m into the new premises and facilities. Pembrokeshire County Council's chairman, Anne Hughes, echoed these sentiments during her visit to M&A.
Scarlets' final pre-season warm up was played at Llandovery's Church Bank on Saturday 29th August as the West Wales region put the finishing touches on a summer of preparation ahead of the Guinness PRO12 opener against Glasgow Warriors next weekend.
The Scarlets secured a convincing and exciting win over Newcastle Falcons in the Singha 7s quarter finals, beating the Aviva Premiership side 26-31, to take the West Wales region through to the Cup semi final against Dai Young's Wasps.
