Mark has welcomed a major boost for skilled defence jobs in Telford.
Defence manufacturer RBSL has been awarded a £860 million contract to make 260 new Boxer military vehicles at its Hadley Park site. This will create and secure 200+ skilled jobs in and around Telford, and is great news for local supply chains too.
Responding to the announcement, Mark said:
"I'm proud that Shropshire continues to play its part in UK defence manufacturing. With contracts for Boxer and Warrior vehicles (and hopefully the Challenger II Life Extension Programme) the defence sector locally and nationally will continue to grow under the Conservatives."
