They have long been supportive of the work that the Chamber does to support and grow the economy of the area, and this commitment represents a real vote of confidence not just in the Chamber and its work but in the economic future of the North Highlands.
“Cavendish Nuclear has played a vital role in the Dounreay decommissioning for a number of years, and has already brought significant benefits to the local supply chain and to the wider economy. With this agreement, Cavendish Nuclear is making a clear statement of their intention to renew and extend its commitment to the region.
“The nuclear industry has long been a key sector for the North Highlands, and it is fantastic to see Cavendish Nuclear make such a clear commitment to the future of the industry in this area.
“We are very pleased to have this opportunity to build on our long term relationship with Cavendish Nuclear, and look forward to working with them over the coming years to bring even greater benefit to the local supply chain.”
