Boris Johnson Visit

On Friday 15th October, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson MP visited our Global Technology Centre in Bristol to see first-hand how GKN Aerospace is shaping a more sustainable future of flight.

The Prime Minister, accompanied by Foreign Secretary Liz Truss MP, officially opened the £32M centre, which was jointly funded by GKN Aerospace and the Aerospace Technology Centre (ATI).

The Cabinet Ministers saw the break-through technologies being developed, from advanced and lightweight composites today, to electric and hydrogen propulsion technologies to support the transition to zero emissions air travel.

As well as meeting team members, the Prime Minister spent time discussing the skills required by the workforce of the future with graduates and apprentices from both GKN Aerospace and its partner companies and academic institutions.
