North Antrim DUP MP Ian Paisley has welcomed news of a multimillion pound order secured by Wrightbus.
Spokesman on Culture Media & Sport, Communities & Local Government and Energy & Climate Change.
Commenting Mr Paisley said,
“I am delighted and encouraged for Wrightbus and the workforce for achieving this new multi million pound order for Hong Kong.
The Far East has been a great market for this local company and the order will help sustain the company at a time when we have seen a downturn in national and international bus orders.
Once again I reiterate my call to Translink and to the U.K. Secretary of State to find some mechanism that will allow Translink to commence an order book with Wright bus going forward.
Overseas orders are fantastic news and are a cherry on top in many cases but local and national bus orders are where the big prize rests.”
