Conor visits local business Handepay
Conor McGinn MP paid a visit to locally-based national business Handepay in Haydock.
Conor met with the Managing Director, Andy Peake, to talk about the company’s success and their plans for the future.
Handepay provides debit and credit card processing services to 26,000 independent businesses. They employ 210 people with 150 jobs based at their headquarters in Haydock.
Andy, from Newton-le-Willows and educated at Selwyn Jones High School, has worked hard to build his business. Last year Handepay celebrated their tenth year anniversary and marked it by pledging to raise £10k for the Steve Prescott foundation.
Speaking after his visit, Conor said:
“It was good to meet with Andy to talk about the success of Handepay, and how he wants to develop his business and continue to make a positive contribution to the local economy and community.
“Chances are if you have paid for goods or services with a credit or debit card, you will have at some point used a Handepay card machine.
“Andy is a great example of what can be achieved through hard work, creating the right product and a skilled and motivated workforce.”
