THE MAYOR of Lousville crossed the Atlantic to pay a a visit to Rotherham’s Advanced Manufacturing Park.
Mayor Greg Fischer — the Kentucky city’s 50th mayor — paid a visit to the state-of-the-art research facility last Wednesday (21).
During his visit, Mayor Fischer was given a full tour of the University of Sheffield's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing, Nuclear AMRC and AMRC Castings.
Mayor Fischer's visit follows on from that of Bruce Katz, one of the world's leading figures in city development, who visited in January.
Cllr Denise Lelliott, Rotherham Council's Advisory Cabinet Member for Housing and the Local Economy and Paul Woodcock, Rotherham's Director of Planning, Regeneration and Culture, were among those whop accompanied Mayor Fischer on his visit last week.
Cllr Lelliott said: "I am proud to welcome Mayor Fischer to Rotherham and show him the innovative work that we are doing in this area.
"His goals are closely aligned to what we are working to deliver in Rotherham and I believe we have much to learn from each other."
