Arrowsmith Engineering Secures New Major Contracts

Arrowsmith Engineering Secures New Major Contracts

Coventry based aerospace supplier, Arrowsmith Engineering, is scaling new heights by securing two six-figure contracts with some of the industry’s global manufacturers.

The deals come after the company invested in an expansion of its production facilities and will now be supplying ITP with specialist engine components.

The company has also secured a deal to supply leading aerospace manufacturer Megitt and was helped in the contract wins by a £450,000 extension to its factory, facilitated by funds from Coventry City Council through the Coventry & Warwickshire 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.

The remaining 3,000 sq ft is new office space for a team of CAD designers, interns and quality engineers.

Managing Director at Arrowsmith Engineering, Jason Aldridge, said that they have had to expand the size of the business to cater for demand from other major manufacturers that they supply parts to.

These orders, which the likes of Rolls-Royce and Eaton, have quadrupled over the past year such is the buoyant nature of the industry.

Aldridge added: 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.

The new facilities have allowed us to lure talent from other big companies into our CAD design and quality engineering departments to develop products for clients, which in turn has attracted six interns into the business from Coventry University to learn their trade.

Account Manager at C&W Growth Hub, Jaymie Thakordas, worked with the company to secure the funding for the company.

She said that Arrowsmith was working at the cutting edge of aerospace technology, with its efforts being rewarded with contracts to supply parts to around half of all civil aircraft manufacturers.
