BAE Systems Warton

In an effort to stave off job losses BAE Systems has slowed down production lines at Warton and Salmesbury, they have managed to keep job losses to a minimum and in doing so hope to hold onto it's key workforce in order not to loose any of its skills sets. Typhoons are still being produced and after the recent Government DSR the announcement that a further three Typhoon squadrons were to be formed was to bring some optimism to the sites in Lancashire.

Another reason to raise confidence for the workforce at Warton was the Hawk production, when in September, ZB101 made its maiden after completing taxi trials at Warton. This is a major milestone for BAESystems at the start of as part of a £1.6 billion project to supply the Royal Saudi Air Force with its next generation of training aircraft.
