A new base for a project aiming to transform the Ministry of Defence’s support services has been opened in Milton Keynes.

Milton Keynes South MP Iain Stewart was invited to take part in the formal opening and ribbon cutting ceremony at the LogNEC Competency Centre at Wavendon Business Park on Friday, October 5.

The centre is the second opened as a part of the partnership between the MoD and Boeing Defence UK.

Workers from four sites in Bicester, Worthy Down, Stanbridge & Witton will be moving to the new base in Milton Keynes. Many of the workers are expected to relocate to the area.

Once the centre is up to full capacity it will be employing over 400 people locally.

Mr Stewart said: “Not only will this be a great boost for the local economy, offering skilled job opportunities, but it cements the city’s growing reputation for high tech research and development.”

The centre has been named Turing House, in recognition of the achievements of Alan Turing, the Second World War codebreaker.
