150 North Wales jobs backed by £110m upgrade for RAF Shadow fleet
RESPONDING to the announcement James Gray, Raytheon UK managing director of cyber, space and training said: “This additional contract builds on the long-term sustainment contract awarded to Raytheon UK, which provides Through-Life Support to the Shadow fleet a few years ago.
“The upgrade is being performed at the company’s facility in Broughton, Wales. Other Raytheon UK’s sites across the United Kingdom – including at RAF Waddington and Harlow – will also contribute.
“We are invested in the British workforce and developing sovereign UK capability. This contract has secured 150 jobs at our Broughton facility and additional jobs throughout our supply chain in Wales and further around the country. We will work with an ecosystem of UK suppliers to ensure the programme benefits from the latest technology and that suppliers across the region have the opportunity to contribute to the upgrade.”
