Aerospace systems supplier brings 160 jobs to Cheshire East
A company which designs systems for aircraft is expanding and hopes to create 160 new jobs in Cheshire East.
AvSupport, currently based in Macclesfield, plans to relocate to a 10,000 sq ft unit at Alderley Park, where it will carry out light manufacturing of aircraft parts to compete with products currently produced in the USA and China.
The new roles will be a mix of manufacturing engineers, administrators and managers.
Cheshire East Council’s business engagement team will be assisting the company with recruitment and funding for equipment and machinery.
Managing director of AvSupport Ltd, Paul Heaton, said: “We are very excited at our move into manufacturing and our relocation to Alderley Park.
“We believe that with our plans and the help and support of Cheshire East Council we will create a great number of new job opportunities over the next few years.”
Leader of Cheshire East Council, Councillor Michael Jones, said: “AvSupport’s plan to move to Alderley Park is a great boost for the Council’s efforts to attract advanced manufacturing companies to expand in the Borough.
“The company is a leader in a dynamic, global industry and we look forward to it creating many high-value jobs of the type which Cheshire East residents want.”
