Carwyn Jones, first minister of Wales, was a guest of Triumph Group in Tredyffrin Township last week, Philly.com reports.
The first minister was celebrating Triumph’s $8 million investment in the Deeside Enterprise Zone in northern Wales. The investment will enable the manufacture of landing-gear hydraulics for Europe’s Airbus consortium, create 60 jobs, and double the plant’s capacity.
