Crucial that vibrant aerospace sector is sustained

Responding to the news that Bombardier is to sell its Northern Ireland operation, FSB NI Head of External Affairs, Roger Pollen said it is crucial that a suitable buyer is found so that we can continue to host a vibrant aerospace sector.

Commenting, FSB NI, Head of External Affairs, Roger Pollen said:

“Bombardier has had a long tradition of operating in Northern Ireland, and its intricate supply chain includes many SMEs throughout the Province. It is crucial that a suitable buyer is found for the operation, who can continue to sustain a vibrant aerospace sector locally.

“The 3,600 people currently employed here by Bombardier are highly skilled and their salaries help sustain local businesses in communities. For the benefit of the wider economy we hope a positive resolution can be found in what will undoubtedly be a very unsettling time for all those affected.”
