200 Jobs May Go At Cassidian (Eads)In Newport Defence

Recommended Posts


Up to 200 jobs are under threat at a defence company in Newport after it lost a UK government contract.

Cassidian specialises in providing secure communications for the MoD and employs around 900 people at its site in the city.

But a restructuring is now taking place following the loss of the contract in December.

A company spokesman said: "The economic environment is proving difficult".

The restructuring could see 200 permanent roles being made redundant over the next four months at the site in Coedkernew, the spokesman confirmed.

Cassidian were the main contractors of a project to replace 46 fire service control rooms around England with nine regional sites.

feck me tulip , i,m over in brizzle , sounds like its gettin desimated over there ! :o

EADS only came to Wales a few years back and was hailed as high tech, high skilled high paying.... now it looks like going...

BBC Wales was reporting something about them doing a huge contract to rationalise and modernise Fire Station control rooms in the UK, costing hundreds of millions, but allegedly the system is well behind schedule, claims it does not work, etc, etc, and apparently the Govt cancelled the contract back before Christmas - or something like that?

So, not good for a variety of reasons.
