Steve Brine visited the Hazeley Estate in Twyford on Friday 10th June as he met up with one of the world's leading cricket helmet manufacturers.
Masuri, whose helmets are used by hundreds of top cricketers across the globe, was founded in Cape Town in 1988 before making the UK its home for both manufacturing and distribution.
Steve visited to discuss issues such as player safety,ã€€and learn more about their Vision Series and Stemguard, and well as chat in detail about the positives and the challenges of trading in the subcontinent, which is a huge cricketing marketplace.
Managing Director Sam Miller, who lives locally, said: "The Masuri brand continues to be a market leader and a favourite with both international and first class players, despite the fact that no player has ever been paid to wear the Masuri helmet.
"We pride ourselves on our helmets' optimum levels of comfort and safety, and we can provide players with a product that boasts a state of the art design and technology, all manufactured right here in the UK.
"We were delighted to invite Steve along to show him around and chat about various issues, including our very latest technology and our experiences of trading in different regions of the world."
Steve said: "One of the best things about my job is visiting exciting businesses and seeing them grow and thrive.
"Masuri are a world renowned brand producing a product that is second to none, from a quiet part of Twyford. It was good to meet the team, learn a little about the business and explore some of the challenges they face as the company grows."
