MPs Vince Cable and Jack Lopresti visit Airbus, Filton

Local MP Jack Lopresti has welcomed the announcement by Airbus of a £70m investment in a new office facility at Filton.

The new Airbus Aerospace Park will be a modern, highly efficient, engineering and technology campus, which it is hoped will help cement the region’s global reputation for aeronautics.

Writing in an article on his website, Mr Lopresti said:

“The last few days have been great news for Filton, the South West and the British economy, and I congratulate Airbus for their continued commitment to our local area. I am delighted that Airbus has made such a strong commitment to Filton. The new Airbus Aerospace Park will secure thousands of jobs locally and is a fitting recognition to the home of British aviation.”

Subject to planning permission being obtained, work on the 12-acre site could start in early 2012.
