Dickson delighted with Caterpillar’s fantastic news for Larne

Alliance East Antrim MLA, Stewart Dickson, has welcomed the announcement that Caterpillar intends to invest £5.4million in its Northern Ireland truck parts manufacturing operation in Larne. It will help secure around 100 jobs on the site.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “This is fantastic news for Larne and is a vote of confidence in Caterpillar’s highly skilled and dedicated workforce. It is tremendous news for the local and wider economy. It shows that Northern Ireland can play a part in a major international business deal.

“I am particularly pleased to see Caterpillar investing in Northern Ireland after 700 workers were made redundant two years ago.

“This is the latest in a series of positive signs for our economy following a number of similar job announcements and contracts at other companies such as Bombardier, Terumo and Thales.”
