The Princess Royal has visited Leeds based Sound Leisure, the world’s only manufacturer of vinyl jukeboxes, to celebrate over 40 years of British manufacturing.
The firm employs 90 staff and has a £5m turnover, exporting 75 per cent of its products as far as Japan.
Chris Black, managing director for Sound Leisure, said: “Today has been a real highlight of 40+ years of business. It’s been an absolute honour to welcome HRH Princess Anne to our Leeds based factory, where she met with our dedicated team and international distributors.
“We were able to demonstrate the methods used in the production of our handcrafted classic Jukeboxes. Her Royal Highness unveiled a plaque to commemorate her visit and that will take pride of place in our reception. We couldn’t be prouder to be a family-run, British manufacturing business and want to express our thanks to The Princess Royal for the time she spent with us.”
