Paul Harris, Director of Economic Development at Rolls-Royce addressed guests at Marketing Derby's 30th Derby Embassy and reaffirmed that, despite the multi-billion pound global firm’s recent announcement of re-structuring and job losses, it remains very committed to Derby.
This commitment is clear to see with work ongoing to build the world’s largest testbed which will be capable of developing the next generation of aero-engines. This is further demonstrated with the world-class centre of innovation which is still investing in new technologies in Derby as well as the firm's support for Infinity Park Derby which is a significant opportunity to develop future technologies.
Paul said, “Rolls-Royce is not turning its back on Derby, far from it. We are still investing and we are committed to the city and its future. The city has a great history of innovation and we will continue to develop this into the future.”
