Alastair Hamilton, CEO of Invest Northern Ireland has expressed his disappointment at today’s news that Bombardier Inc intends to further reduce its worldwide workforce by 7,500.

Mr Hamilton said: “Today’s news will be very upsetting to those working for the company, and their families, especially following on from the announcement made in February.

“The company is yet to provide the detail on where these job losses will come from and therefore we do not yet know the potential impact on Northern Ireland.

“It is important to note that today’s announcement by the company signals an ongoing ramp-up on its newest aircraft programmes, the C Series and Global 7000, both of which have significant Northern Ireland work content.

“We will continue to work closely with Michael and his team in Belfast to support them through this process, and will maintain contact with the management team in Canada to present the strengths and benefits of Northern Ireland as part of the Bombardier operation.

“We also remain committed to the implement the Aerospace Growth Partnership’s Industrial Strategy for UK Aerospace and our regional strategy for the sector.”
