Arrowsmith Engineering Secures Major Global Manufacturing Contracts

Funding to Help the UK Aerospace Sector After Pandemic

Midlands aerospace engineering firm Arrowsmith Engineering has secured two six figure contracts with global manufacturers.

The Warwickshire based company will now supply ITP, a global aircraft components business, with manufactured engine components.

The agreement comes following a visit from officials to Arrowsmith Engineering’s new £450,000 extension to their facilities which were funded partly by the Coventry City Council through the C&W Growth Hub.

The money has allowed the business to extend its working area by 8,000 sq ft, including a new 5,000 sq ft factory to increase manufacturing levels, along with 3,000 sq ft of office space for a team of CAD designers, interns and quality engineers.

Managing Director at Arrowsmith Engineering, Jason Aldridge, said that the last year has been an incredible journey and growth period for the company in what is a dynamic, fast paced industry.

Aldridge added: We’ve had to expand the size of the business to cater for demand from other big manufacturers that we develop and supply parts to, such as Meggit – whose orders with us have quadrupled over the past year – and the likes of Rolls-Royce and Eaton.

As well as general aircraft maintenance, the demand is being driven by the need to build more aircraft – whether it’s for civic or military use.

He also said that the new facilities have allowed the company to lure talent from other major firms into their CAD design and quality engineering departments to develop products for clients, which have in turn attracted six interns into the business from Coventry University to learn their trade.

Jaymie Thakordas, account manager at C&W Growth Hub, worked with the company to secure funding for the business.

She added: Arrowsmith Engineering is right at the front of cutting-edge technology in the Aerospace industry and supplies parts to around half of all civic aircraft, so the potential for this business to grow is huge and this latest agreement with ITP is evidence of Arrowsmith’s great start to their expansion journey.
