Aerospace supplier expanding after award win

By Emma Deighan

A Co Down aerospace supplier has announced the creation of six new jobs following an investment and receipt of an industry award.

Bradfor Ltd in Rostrevor has extended its premises to accommodate new technology.

The firm said the expansion will allow it to maintain its position as a major supplier of dress covers and upholstery to the aerospace sector.

The announcement came after the firm, which has been operating since 1996, received a Business Excellence Award from SC21, a programme designed to accelerate the competitiveness of the aerospace and defence industry.

Managing director of Bradfor Ltd Patricia Clements said: "It is important that we remain cost competitive and continue to win contracts, competing against low cost countries, and this expansion allows us to do just that."
