LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - March 7, 2007) - Amicus reaction to the announcement that EADS has been awarded the contract to improve fire service delivery through their Fire Control program.

Amicus Head of Political, Mike Griffiths says,
"Amicus campaigned hard to ensure that the programme went to Newport. It's excellent news for Wales and the rest of the UK.

This is exactly the kind of highly skilled work we need to safeguard the future for the region and UK manufacturing. UK workers will be at the heart of cutting edge manufacturing technology and it's a great example of companies working together with the workforce and Government'.
