LINK: MB Aerospace signs $1bn contract with US firm.

I am delighted to hear of the fantastic news that Motherwell-based company MB Aerospace has signed a $1bn (£780m) contract to provide flight engine parts to Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corporation (UTC).

This is not just a great development for the company itself, but also for our local community with MB Aerospace confirming they will recruit 160 new staff as part of the 10-year agreement.

As MP for Motherwell & Wishaw, I place employment and attracting new jobs to the area as a priority. The news that 160 new jobs will now be created in Motherwell as a positive result of this agreement is fantastic for our constituency.
