Yesterday I was able to attend the opening of Raytheon UK’s new Hanger 119 at Hawarden Airport in Flintshire.

This new facility will develop new, cutting-edge capabilities on behalf of the British aerospace sector and has already created 50 jobs with another 200 in the pipeline.

North Wales is open for business and we have a very high-skilled workforce in the region and this new facility is a huge show of confidence in the region’s business environment.
