In 1989, Short Brothers plc (Shorts) was acquired by Bombardier from the UK Government. Since then, with investment of more than £2.1 billion, Bombardier Belfast has become an integral part of the world’s third largest civil aircraft manufacturer.

The investment continues today in capabilities, manufacturing facilities, processes and technologies. Bombardier Belfast‘s areas of expertise include the design, manufacture and support of large aircraft structures in metal and advanced composites.

We were delighted when, in 2013, Bombardier Belfast partnered with ICUF to award the annual Sir George Quigley Memorial Scholarship.
