Midlands aerospace firm lands six-figure contracts following investment


A Midlands aerospace engineering company has secured two six-figure contracts with some of the global manufacturers.

Arrowsmith Engineering, based in Warwickshire will now supply ITP, a global aircraft components company, with manufactured engine components.

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

The money has enabled the business to extend its working area by 8,000ft2 – including a new 5,000ft2 factory to increase manufacturing levels, and 3,000ft2 of office space for a team of CAD designers, quality engineers and interns.

Jason Aldridge, managing director at Arrowsmith Engineering, said: “The past 12 months have been an incredible journey and period of growth for the business in what is a fast-paced, dynamic industry.

“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.

“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.
