Rolls-Royce reports business as usual for defence

27th March 2020 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rolls-Royce’s defence division has been designated as a key supplier for the UK military, and hence it will not be forced to close due to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.

However, the company is closing its civil aerospace facilities.

Rolls-Royce announced in a statement on 27 March: ‘We have now decided to significantly reduce all but essential activity within our UK Civil Aerospace facilities for one week from midnight on 27 March.’

The propulsion systems manufacturer will continue to meet the demands of the UK military by supplying and supporting engines to power military aircraft, naval vessels and other platforms.
