Magellan is an excellent example of an innovative and dynamic company. Since establishing a presence here, in Northern Ireland in 2012, and working in partnership with Invest Northern Ireland the company has continued to enhance its core engineering capabilities and expand its manufacturing footprint here."

Today it is one of the premier aerospace regions in Europe and the sector accounts for approximately 14% of our manufactured exports. Manufacturing is a vital cog in our economic machine it drives exports, it drives research and it drives development, all of which are the key to generating wealth. I will continue to do all I can to support the sector and protect our important manufacturing heritage.
