Benefits of BAE Systems Barrow shipyard expansion spread far and wide

THE Successor programme involves the recruitment of 1,400 apprentices, graduates and trainees.


More than 700 companies will be involved in the supply chain, extending to almost every postcode in the UK.

Up to 85 per cent of the supply chain cost – around £3.55bn – will be spent in the UK.

But the local economy will especially feel the benefit. Mr Johns, who was promoted to managing director in October last year, said: “It’s great for the local economy. In terms of hotels, if you try and book a hotel in Barrow on a week night it’s difficult because of the number of people already coming to support the programmes.

“This is going to provide lots of opportunities for local businesses and also have a knock-on effect into the broader economy which has got to be good news for Barrow and the local area. It certainly will create and sustain jobs more broadly in the community.”
