Almac Athlone Purchase Deeply Worrying - O'Dowd
Sinn Féin MLA John O'Dowd has said news that pharmaceutical giant Almac has purchased a second site in the South is deeply worrying and further evidence of Brexit stripping the local economy of investment and jobs.
The Upper Bann MLA said:
"Almac has proven to be very loyal to Portadown over the years but companies such as Almac operate in a global market. They need unrestricted access to the EU.
"The Tory Brexiteers and their DUP allies are being reckless with local jobs in pursuit of a narrow little Britain agenda.”
