David Cameron opens factory in North Wales

The Prime Minister visits the Airbus Factory in Broughton

The new £400 million pound "North" factory will secure jobs in North Wales, producing wings for the new A350 XWB long-range aircraft.

Hundreds filled the new building which will support over 1,200 jobs in the Airbus sites at Filton and Broughton and more than 5,000 other high skill, high value jobs across the UK supply chain.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “The Government is committed to building a more balanced economy with stronger manufacturing, exports and private investment, creating jobs and opportunities across the UK.

"I welcome the opening of Airbus's new state of the art facility which will contribute to this and support our programme to create sustainable economic growth. Airbus's investment here also underlines its confidence in the expertise of its British workforce and in the UK's manufacturing base."
