    Default Cobham engineering sold to the Yanks

    UK Government to investigate Cobham sale on national security grounds

    Yeah like the govt. are going to reverse that decision. They'll do what Trump orders them to.

    And so it begins. Once the Yanks are finished with the UK in their post-Brexit "deal", it'll be a hollowed out husk.
    Hard Brexit now!

    This is the same company that bought Laird PlC a British engineering company renowned for excellence a few years ago. Since the takeover they've been expanding in the US, plenty of jobs advertised there and none in the UK.

    Cobham really fits well in their portfolio, excellent engineering company which can be transferred to the US due to their strong market presence. Plenty of scope for increasing the value of the company by moving the manufacturing to the US.

    They'll still need the warehouses though to store goods for the UK market.

    Any manufacturer with ambitions will either want to be located either in the EU or the US to take advantage of a large home market. Cobham Engineering is no exception.

    Indeed. The hard currency is needed to pay off the Northern, lazy, unable-to-get-on-their-bike, uncompetitive, unproductive thickos who voted Tory.
    Because like the L'Oreal ad, they're worth it.
    Fook long term sustainable industry post Brexit.
