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 were well aware of the enormity of the challenge that lay ahead as they travelled to Allianz Park to take on current champions Saracens on Saturday evening and despite coming away empty handed the region put in a hugely gutsy and passionate performance, scoring two tries.
