Jack visits Selex Systems Integration
Jack today visited Selex Systems Integration in their offices in Bristol Business Park.
Selex are part of the Finmeccanica group, and employ around 200 people in their Bristol office. While there, he gained an overview of the full range of work they are doing, from cyber security and military technology, to work computerising train timetables.
Jack was particularly impressed with their work on cyber security. 'This is an area of huge and growing importance, and Selex are doing some excellent work in raising awareness of it and designing systems to counter cyber criminals. I will be visiting them again to take a closer look at this.'
Jack also spoke of their links with the MoD, and their reactions to the Strategic Defence and Security Review. He also heard about their plans for future expansion.
'The presence of Selex reinforces to me the high-tech nature of much of the local economy in the South Gloucestershire area. I welcome their presence in South Gloucestershire, and I am sure they will go from strength to strength in the years ahead.'
Jack is pictured with David Gould, Executive Chairman of Selex, and Michael Clayforth-Carr, Chief Executive Officer.
