Yes I noticed that ??? .  It's difficult to understand - at least 400 local engineering jobs predicted and this will create a spin off for local suppliers which will benefit all our communities.  It's time for us to move on - if you keep looking back you'll trip over something.

Yes indeed, but old habits and attitudes,  die hard.  ::)

I am delighted that the funding came through. Although it was a bit concerning that it took this amount of time. I only hope that the promised jobs happen. In the back of my mind I'd be slightly worried that this company are not going to renague on their plans. The workforce deserve to be treated properly.

Good to see that Harland & Wolff have teamed up with a Spanish shipbuilder. Let's hope this, the wind energy projects and the MOD contracts, secure its future. Northern Ireland without a Harland & Wolff, would be unthinkable.  :)

The 2020 employment census/figures for H&W should make for interesting reading.
I hope its an improvment on the last figures. Lets hope so. 👍

Infrastrata completed the purchase of H&W today by paying the administrators 3.3 million.  They can now go ahead and finalise existing contracts.  The 120 employees and their families will now feel more secure and enjoy their Christmas.
No answer is an answer.

I'm quite sure you will find fault with it, irrespective of what it states.  :D
