A BAE Systems sign is seen outside the company’s Warton site near Preston, northern England in this October 1, 2009 file photograph. Europe’s biggest defence contractor BAE Systems said on September 27, 2011 it will cut up to 3,000 jobs in Britain as smaller global defence budgets hit orders for its fighter jets.
The company, which is Britain’s biggest manufacturer, said the four partner nations in the Eurofighter Typhoon programme — the UK, Germany, Italy and Spain — were slowing production rates to help ease their budget pressures, affecting the workload at a number of sites.
