Rolls Royce Barnoldswick Changes?

John Waller November 25th, 2020

Rolls Royce reportedly to close parts of Lancashire plant and move production abroad from Friday.

Rolls Royce Barnoldswick reportedly to move production of its Trent Blade Fans to Singapore from its Lancashire factory.

At the site, they manufactured fan blades for aircraft jets engines.

They have been located at the site for eighty years. The planned move will mean that 150 jobs are at risk.

As yet, no news has leaked regarding any outright closure.

Further to be confirmed, reports suggest work will be distributed to sites in Spain and Japan.

Barnoldswick began production in the 1940’s, producing jet engines invented by Frank Whittle.

The effect on East Lancashire will have an impact locally on the supply of services, and adds to a gloomy outlook for UK businesses.
