Bombardier Awards Global 7000 and Global 8000 Aircraft Final Assembly to its Toronto Site

"Our Toronto site employees have the knowledge and expertise required to assemble these two new business aircraft," said Steve Ridolfi, President, Bombardier Business Aircraft. "Their contribution and dedication to manufacturing world-class aircraft are instrumental in helping Bombardier expand its leadership position in the business aircraft market."

"The final assembly of the Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft will also build on the distinguished 83-year heritage of our Toronto site. Our partnership with the Canadian Auto Workers, Local 112 was key to bringing these work packages to Toronto, a site which has, throughout its history, played a role in making Canada a major player in the international aerospace industry," added Mr. Ridolfi.

"We are delighted to have these new work packages and the jobs they will bring to Toronto," said Merv Gray, Plant Chair, Local 112, Canadian Auto Workers. "Our members take great pride in their work and are confident they will continue to contribute to Bombardier Aerospace's long-term success."

Bombardier continues to evaluate options for the production support work package, which includes functions such as technical publications and procurement in support of the manufacturing programme.
