Councillor Mary Heathcote OBE, the Mayor of Kingston upon Thames has visited the European headquarters of the Databac Group in Kingston.

The visit was part of the Mayor's ongoing efforts to support the local business community: "I believe that independent businesses and retailers have a vital role to play within our local community"

"It is heartening to visit Databac as it bucks this trend, remaining here in the centre of Kingston and contributing so much to the local economy," she said.

Databac has been manufacturing polyester cards in Kingston, Surrey, UK, since 1970. The cards can be produced with a number of technologies for use with loyalty, access control, time and attendance and other systems.

They are made on demand for companies, governments and organisations worldwide, sold from Databac's offices in the UK and Spain, as well as through a network of approved distributors.

Databac holds clearances for the production of cards by the MoD and the Stationery Office (formerly HMSO). In

The Mayor was greeted by MD Charles Balcomb, financial director Linda Richards and general manager Alain Picard.

During her visit she met with many of the workers in the factory and spoke a few words of appreciation and support.
