250 jobs safeguarded at GE’s Rugby site after MoD brings forward equipment order
Around 250 jobs have been safeguarded at General Electric’s Rugby site after workers were told that the Ministry of Defence had signed off on an order for the second batch Type 26 Frigates motors to be built at the site.
The MoD’s order secures the immediate future of Rugby site, which employs over 250 people making power conversion units.
GE had previously announced the site’s closure with its work being relocated to Nancy in France by the end of 2019.
