Economy Minister Diane Dodds and officials from Invest NI this afternoon met senior management from Caterpillar NI following its announcement yesterday that it is going into a period of consultation on possible redundancies.

The Minister reiterated her Department and Invest NI stand ready to support the company to mitigate the impact.

The Minister said: “I made clear my disappointment with yesterday’s announcement by Caterpillar in Northern Ireland and expressed my strong wish that any redundancies are kept to an absolute minimum. My Department and Invest NI will continue to engage with the company and offer support as it enters a period of consultation to ensure the sustainability of both its sites in NI.”
