THE DUKE of Kent visited the headquarters of Apollo Fire Detectors in Havant, Hampshire to commemorate 40 years of excellence in UK manufacturing by the company.
During his visit, the Duke took a tour of the manufacturing facilities and met some of the engineers and assembly workers at the facility.
