Broughton Under Threat By Power8?

Wed Jan 31, 2007 5:38 pm

This article, http://business.guardian.co.uk/story/0,,1999630,00.html , that is being discussed in M&S sugests that EADS may make a decision between Filton and a site in Germany as the site for composite wing production. This would be for A350 and the next A320.

What are the impacts on the Broughton factory which is currently producing more wings than ever?

For the time being, it is hard to judge which party is leaking 'information' for what purpose. There are reports in the media here that the German center for CFRP manufacturing and an associated technology research facility are going to be put under Spanish lead. That would be quite an insult.
I have the impression someone is trying to play dirty tricks to stir up a mudfight between the UK, Spain, and Germany. Funny how there's no news on what's contemplated for the French sites...  scratchchin

for once, the unions may have it right, and all this "leaked" information is purely to focus attention on "other" areas that will get slashed...
