THE Princess Royal visited two Hereford companies during a visit to the city.

Princess Anne opened new premises at the Wye Vale Business Park for Global Radiodata Communications (GRC).

The company moved there in January this year because more space was needed due to an expanding workforce.

GRC supplies communications and information systems to the military, government departments and companies.

The Princess was introduced to Howard Hain, the company’s chief executive, by the Lord Lieutenant of Herefordshire, Lady Darnley.

The princess also paid a visit to MilSys (UK) at Rotherwas to mark the firm’s national and international success and the support it provides to the Ministry of Defence.
