Bombardier to sell Belfast operations

Post by GEEK » 17 May 2019, 20:05

From BBC News:

The aerospace firm, Bombardier, is putting its Belfast operation up for sale as part of a reorganisation of the business.

The company, which also has factories in Morocco, is selling its entire aerostructures operation.

The Canadian aircraft manufacturer employs about 3,600 people across several locations in Northern Ireland.

The company said it would be working closely with employees and unions, through any future transition period.
In a statement, Bombardier said it was consolidating all aerospace assets into a "single, streamlined and fully integrated business".

"As a result, Bombardier will pursue the divestiture of its Belfast and Morocco aerostructures businesses."

The statement added: "Our sites in Belfast and Morocco have seen a significant increase in work from other global customers in recent years.
