Economy Minister Diane Dodds has visited Bombardier’s Queen’s Island site following the weekend fire.

Speaking from the site in Belfast today after meeting with Bombardier’s Chief Operating Officer Michael Ryan, the Minister said: “The fact the fire was contained to one area of the factory is testament to the professionalism of both the Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service and Bombardier staff. I want to pay tribute to them for their skill and efficiency in dealing with the blaze and preventing this situation from becoming much worse.

“I am pleased to be able to hear for myself that the impact on the factory has been minimal, with the majority of work unaffected and it is business as usual.

“Our aerospace industry is founded on a strong engineering heritage and an excellent grounding in knowledge and skills. These skills and experience will be invaluable as we begin to rebuild after the devastating impacts of Covid-19.

“Bombardier is vital to the manufacturing sector here, being not only one of our largest employers but also a major customer for other businesses within the supply chain. I am therefore glad to hear that despite the fire there will be a minimum of disruption to customers and suppliers.”
