The Ukrainians are coming to Ross-on-Wye
3:31pm Tuesday 22nd January 2013 in News
REPRESENTATIVES from Ukrainian aerospace company Markets-Mat and the Ukrainian government are due in Ross-on-Wye later this month with millions of pounds of investment on their minds.
That money would build an advanced manufacturing plant at Model Farm, Hildersley, meaning hundreds of new jobs.
As previously reported by the Hereford Times, several months of international negotiations involving Herefordshire Council and US based global business go-between the Get It Group have been held to secure that investment for Ross.
Those negotiations have Market-Mats actively considering Ross as a UK base.
On January 30 the president of Market-Mats and the Ukrainian deputy minister for economic development will meet with Communities Secretary Eric Pickles before travelling to Ross to meet with Herefordshire Council leaders the next day.
The Get it Group are also brokering the deal that brings Georgia’s Tbilisi Aerospace Manufacturing to the Rotherwas Enterprise Zone in Hereford.
