Maintenance deal helps secure jobs
A NEW multi-million-pound deal to maintain the RAF's Hercules military transporter planes is expected to help sustain the jobs of some Rolls-Royce workers at Filton.
The Ministry of Defence says the £350-million contract with Marshall Aerospace will support around 500 jobs in the UK with the aircraft serviced under one contract until 2015.
Although a vast majority of the jobs affected will be at Cambridge Airport the contract is good news for Rolls-Royce and sub-contractor Vector Aerospace which maintain engines at Filton, Hook, Croydon and Brize Norton.
The contracts are worth almost £100 million to Rolls-Royce.
