Case Study – Nordam Group, Blackwood

NORDAM Europe Limited is a joint venture with the General Electric Aero Engine Services Ltd. The Blackwood (Nordam Europe Limited) facility repairs jet nacelles (engine casings), thrust reversers and flight-control surfaces, and employs 180 workers, 16 of whom are over 50.

Recently, the company had to make several employees redundant. The company’s redundancy policy had several options including looking for volunteers, reducing the workload and applying unbiased selection conditions. The last option was chosen and no worker was selected for redundancy because of their age.
