Wrightbus deal has failed

The owner of the Wrightbus factory in Galgorm, Northern Ireland, has said he has not been able to reach a deal to sell it to a new owner.

Jeff Wright (b. 1963) said that the sticking point had been farmland he does not consider part of the factory site.

In a statement released today, bidder Jo Bamford (b. 1977) said he had met the asking price for both the Wrightbus factory and the land.

‘Mr Wright has since refused this offer and has now asked for a significantly higher sum of money,’ Mr Bamford added.
