Bird Stevens Manufacturing secure Gardner Aerospace project

Midlands based Bird Stevens Manufacturing Limited and Gardner Aerospace in Derby are now working together in a deal to supply metal Cowls for use on Rolls Royce engines.

The project has been secured with Bird Stevens Manufacturing because of their capabilities in deep drawing using one of their three specialist Double Action Presses, which enable these complex parts to be manufactured from a flat blank.

Rob Grimley, Operations Control at Gardner Aerospace commented, "We were delighted with all aspects of the management of this project from initial approach through to the close. We presented Bird Stevens Manufacturing with a very challenging timeframe that was critical to helping us maintain delivery to our end user.

"Modifications to tooling were identified and completed within a mere 48 hours, pricing was extremely competitive and the openness and flexibility offered during manufacture made a potentially stressful job run without a hitch.

"The resultant parts sailed through the complex approval and quality requirements associated to their final use and we would certainly recommend Bird Stevens Manufacturing Limited as the first choice for this kind of work."

Tony Green, Business Development Manager at Bird Stevens Manufacturing commented, "We are delighted to be working alongside Gardner Aerospace on this project.

"We see our broad Presswork capability as a great opportunity to grow our business in the future, through supplying components directly to customers as well as into sub assemblies and finished products which we manufacture in other departments of the factory.

"Our Presses currently produce thousands of metal components in small and large batches every week and although the volumes on these components for Gardner Aerospace are relatively small, the complex technical needs of the parts have easily been met by our engineers using our Double Action Presses and we are very pleased to add them to the range of parts we now produce."
