Bassetlaw MP John has welcomed the awarding of a contract worth up to £20 million to local Worksop firm Rockford to supply electrical cable assemblies for the latest Army AJAX and Warrior Capability Sustainment Programmes.
After a six month process Rockford has been chosen to partner with Lockheed Martin UK and review designs, identify cos savings and provide cables for development and production vehicles.
John Mann MP said “This new contract is great news for Rockford and for Worksop, as it not only secures the existing jobs but also will lead to the creation of new ones.”
Mann continued “I would like to congratulate the firm and all their staff for the hard work they have put into the bidding process. It’s great to see more jobs and investment for our area.”
