Aerospace Lancashire will have its biggest
ever presence at this month’s Farnborough International Airshow (11-17 July).
Aerospace Lancashire is a collaboration between the Lancashire
Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Lancashire County Council to
showcase the sector’s strength, suppliers and partners, such as:
· Lancashire is at the centre of the largest cluster of
aerospace production in the UK, employing over 12,700 people, and
part of a wider world-class regional cluster accounting for more
than a quarter of UK aerospace production.
· BAE Systems,
which assembles the UK’s Eurofighter Typhoons in Lancashire and
will build 10% of the F-35 programme - the largest
military aerospace programme ever, worth $1 trillion - is based in
Lancashire and other firms are supplying the civil aviation
market, such as the nearby Airbus UK facility.
makes a significant contribution to the whole aerospace supply
chain with world-class firms like Senior Aerospace Weston,
Magellan Aerospace, Rolls-Royce and Safran Nacelles, to name but a
few, operating in areas such as metal machining of aircraft
structural and engine components, the process and treatment
industry and engine sub-systems.
· Lancashire is at the
forefront of global innovation in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
technology - the world’s most advanced UAV, the Taranis, was
designed, built and tested in Lancashire.
· The Samlesbury
Enterprise Zone (EZ) site is a new, high quality development on
the UK’s newest Advanced Manufacturing Park immediately adjacent
to BAE systems. Colliers International is now marketing the 1 million sq ft of business space at Samlesbury.
A number of major firms
based, or with a presence in the county - such as Safran-Nacelles,
Rolls Royce and Hycrome Aerospace - will represent Lancashire at
the airshow. Representatives of the LEP, Lancashire County
Council, the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA) and Colliers
International will also be present.
Aerospace Lancashire’s stand is alongside a range of the
county’s aerospace companies and suppliers including Hurst Green Plastics, Valuechain, Granada Material Handling, Castle Metals,
Rule IQ, Senior Aerospace and also the University of Central Lancashire.
Kaman, Safran-Aircelle, Magellan, Rolls-Royce
and BAE Systems are among the firms exhibiting elsewhere on site.
Aerospace Lancashire is part of the NWAA stand
at 1/B140 in Hall 1.
