On a whistlestop tour to promote British manufacturing and engineering, Prince Charles visited ATG Access on Haydock Industrial Estate.
PRINCE Charles was handed a tangy reminder of his last trip to St Helens, when he was presented with a hamper of Bartons Pickles as he visited another of the town’s success stories.
Remembering how the Prince expressed a fondness for piccalili when he visited Bartons Pickles in Parr on his last trip to St Helens in 2004, Mayor of St Helens Cllr Geoff Almond presented Charles with a a true taste of St Helens in the shape of a basket of Bartons' finest.

Europe’s largest manufacturer of security bollards, traffic management systems and vehicle barriers, the company currently exports to more than 40 countries worldwide.
ATG Access has achieved export sales of more than £6m.
Most recently the company has secured a $6m contract to supply the perimeter security surrounding the new International Airport in Doha, Quatar.
They have also secured contracts with the Prime Minister’s Office in Malaysia, the Abu Dhabi Investment Centre, Changi and Adelaide Airports, and the Queen’s Palace in Holland.
ATG has provided equipment for a number of British Government buildings as well as Buckingham Palace and Clarence House.
It provided the security bollards for London 2012 and now hopes to capitalise on this success to win the contract for Rio 2016.
