Fuel prices, global economic uncertainty and lower passenger numbers have meant that the aerospace sector is being squeezed from all sides.

However, there are some outstanding success stories, not least of which is the prominence of the European aircraft manufacturing sector, which benefits from sourcing major components from plants in the UK, France and across Europe. Further afield, other exciting projects with revolutionary aircraft are at last maturing. Driving cost down is always a goal, and where new technology can either increase passenger numbers or reduce fuel costs, the proposition becomes more and more attractive.

At Engineers Mate, we appreciate that aircraft spares and components need to be of the highest quality and that aircraft manufacturers and their suppliers must source products which can operate in very harsh environments and must be lightweight and reliable. All this means exacting standards, which we understand and are committed to working with this sector to ensure our customers have the quality products they require.

Please remember, we are available 24/7.
