Thats rotten, Shorts has a very skilled workforce with great design teams that have made some signifcant breakthroughs within the carbon fiber industry. Should they not get another buyer then it will be curtains to another skilled workforce that will be lost.

Only obvious buyer is the EU's Airbus and why would they move to the north with all the Brexit uncertainty, no gov, and bail out DUP politicians who are rabidly Anti-EU and refused to listen to Bombardier's warnings.

If Airbus were interested you would question why they hadnt done the deal behind closed doors. I'm sure their JV agreement would have some right of first refusal on the C Series element

Worrying times for Bombardier . . .

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-48130991

President and chief executive Alain Bellemare added: "With our clear vision for the future of Bombardier Aviation, we will focus our aerostructures activities around our core capabilities in Montréal, Mexico and our newly acquired Global 7500 wing operations in Texas.
"Collectively, these facilities provide Bombardier with all the skills, technologies and capabilities to design, produce and service the current and next generation of aircraft."

They obviously think their interest are best served elsewhere. It would make you think will potential buyers think the same. Worrying times indeed.

Let the mud slinging begin!

Brexit and SF.

Don't forget the Unionists

In the interest of balance

The DUP are like the Tories. They devoted all of their energy of the last 3 years to a fantasy that delivered nothing and severely damaged the credibility of the UK in the world of industry .

There are still one or two NI engineering companies that are growing and recruiting plenty of top quality talent.
They tend to be from west of the Bann but the best ones are making a dash eastwards  ;)

The more the NI economy fails, the more attractive a United Ireland will look
Not to the taxpayers in the South.

The North needs loads of investment judging by the what to do in Omagh thread.
