Invest NI Welcomes Involvement of Wrightbus in the GREAT Campaign

May 15, 2013

Welcoming the involvement of Wrightbus and the New Bus for London in the GREAT campaign Alastair Hamilton, Chief Executive of Invest Northern Ireland said:

“The inclusion of the Wrightbus manufactured New Bus for London in the UK Government’s GREAT campaign is just reward and recognition for the Co Antrim company.  Wrightbus is a leading example of an innovative business that has continued to invest in its future and to see this recognised on the world stage is heartening indeed. The opportunity to showcase its commitment to innovation, as two of its new iconic buses tour the US and around the world over the next two years, is truly unique.

“We have worked closely with Wrightbus for many years now, supporting the company in its continued investment in R&D, innovation and training. This continued investment by the company is paying dividends as it continues to receive high value orders, such as supplying 600 of the New Bus for London in a contract worth more than £200m.  

“To see its commitment to R&D and innovation being recognised in the UK Government’s GREAT campaign promoting innovation, creativity and manufacturing prowess is something the company, and Northern Ireland plc, should be very proud of.”
