BAE Systems sustains 600 UK jobs

- By Charlotte Stubben

BAE Systems said it had won a 446 million pound deal to provide engineering support for Eurofighter Typhoon jets, Reuters reports.

The deal helps BAE Systems to sustain some 600 jobs in Britain.

The five-year contract covers the support of 306 Typhoon jets currently used by Britain, Germany, Italy and Spain. The number will increase as more jets are delivered.

"The order will help to sustain around 600 jobs at BAE Systems' Warton and Samlesbury sites in Lancashire focused on engineering, supply chain and project management," BAE said in a statement.
