Heres what P&M have to say…

As a result of a detailed strategic review of the business, the directors of P&M have decided to consolidate all operations to the company’s Manton site near Marlborough, Wiltshire. Sadly, this means that the P&M Rochdale operation will be closing down within the next 6 weeks.

This difficult decision was reached with the intention of securing the business for the future, and allowing the company to plan for expansion and improve the service to its existing customers and dealer networks around the world.

The directors believe the company has potential for considerable growth, and investment is already taking place in order to enable the company to meet its business aims and continue to facilitate the design of exciting new world-beating aircraft types.

The directors of P&M would like to stress that the business remains sound and this change safeguards the long term future of the company. It is very much business as usual, building their current range of aircraft, providing spares and servicing as well as the development of leading edge new aircraft.

All staff are working to ensure that the transition is as seamless as possible with the minimum of disruption. All e-mail addresses will remain unchanged and the Rochdale phone numbers will be diverted to Manton.
