Destination Farnborough for North West aerospace companies

More than 45 North West aerospace companies will be heading for Farnborough International Air Show this weekend in the hope of boosting business and winning new orders.

Over 40 will be exhibiting with the North West Aerospace Alliance, which aims to make a major impact at the show on behalf of its members and the North West region.

Companies ranging from small specialist companies to major suppliers of components and sub-systems will be aiming to add to the estimated £200 million plus in revenue generated sine the NWAA first started organising the North West presence at air shows in the mid 1990s.

The Alliance will have the largest presence of any UK regional industry support organisation and will be exhibiting in a prime space in Hall 1 (Stand 9-12 & D14)

With assistance from the Northwest Regional Development Agency, the NWAA will be providing facilities and support for member companies attending the show and will also be promoting the strengths of the 300 plus companies that make up the North West Aerospace industry – the largest in the UK.

Responsible for more than 30 per cent of the total UK aerospace output and generating more then £6 billion each year in revenue, the aerospace sector is a mainstay of the North West economy.

While general economic indicators point to a downturn in the UK as a whole, the aerospace sector is currently holding firm with the North West benefiting from its involvement in key programmes including the A380 double-deck airliner, the Airbus "family" in general, the Typhoon and Joint Strike Fighter military aircraft programmes and emerging technologies such as unmanned aircraft.

Comments NWAA Chief Executive Officer Martin Wright: "The region is faced with an unprecedented workload, which is creating significant pressures on the provision of skills to satisfy demand.

"However, no one can afford to be complacent, we have to continue to be competitive globally if we are to retain the levels of business that make the North West aerospace industry such and important part of the regional and national economy.

"Farnborough not only gives our member companies the opportunity to make new contacts and win more business, but also allows us to see which way the industry is heading and to enable us to gear our activities to meets future needs."
