A Midlands aerospace engineering company is flying after securing two six-figure contracts with some of the industry’s global manufacturers.

Arrowsmith Engineering, based on Bayton Road in Exhall, will now supply ITP, a leading 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 8,000 sq ft - including a new 5,000 sq ft factory to increase manufacturing levels, and 3,000 sq ft of office space for a team of CAD designers, quality engineers and interns.

Jason Aldridge, managing director at Arrowsmith Engineering, said: “The past twelve 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.

“The C&W Growth Hub funding has also enabled us to bring external testing processes of parts in house with new state-of-the-art machinery, resulting in extra work from Meggit.”

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.

“We also believe this investment will have a positive knock-on effect for the bigger manufacturers in the Coventry and Warwickshire area that Arrowsmith Engineering supply to such as Meggit.”
