Denver based British Consul General Beverley Simpson will be in Montrose Tuesday touring innovative companies and manufacturers based here. Montrose Economic Development Corporation Director Sandy Head says the idea is to open up channels of communication between local industry and Great Britain, and bring more business to Montrose entrepreneurs.
Head says the British Consul will be on the Western Slope for several days. Simpson will tour three local businesses including Brightleaf Power Company. The solar voltaic system Brightleaf installed at the Montrose Wastewater Treatment Plant is now fully operational and was unveiled by civic leaders last week.
