Tata takes over the CBI Member Lounge

As part of the ongoing Tata 150th year anniversary celebrations, Tata are taking over the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) member lounge in Cannon Street, London for the month of October. Tata will exhibit a few of its diverse companies, the innovations which have kept the business fresh for 150 years, as well as the values which have guided the group since the earliest days.

The CBI speaks on behalf of 190,000 businesses of all sizes and sectors, communicating the British business voice around the world. Their office in Cannon Street, London, is regularly used by many top-level business executives and policymakers to meet and do business. The Member Lounge has a monthly footfall in excess of 1,400 visitors and it provides a great opportunity to showcase the diversity of the Tata group and the partners it works with to bring change to societies.

David Landsman OBE, executive director of Tata Limited, said “Together, Tata’s companies in the UK are among the CBI’s largest members. This reflects our investment in the UK in sectors from automotive, steel and chemicals, to IT services, design and beverages. We have played a part in the UK economy since 1907 and continue to be significant employers across the nations and regions of Britain. I hope this exhibition, which we’re proud to put on at the CBI’s HQ, shows something of our diverse business in the UK and the potential for the future.”

Carolyn Fairbairn, CBI director-general, said, “We’re honoured that Tata is using our members lounge this month to celebrate its 150th anniversary. In its long history, Tata has made a significant contribution to our country, from pioneering in the digital and manufacturing sphere to its dedication to philanthropy. There’s no doubt that Tata will continue to lead in the field of innovation and carry on its legacy of developing ground-breaking ideas.”
