The Produmax team were joined by Theresa May at their Farnborough stand first thing, before heading off to deliver her opening speech to key industry figures.
During her show opening tour on Monday, May promised to start working with industry on a potential Aerospace Sector Deal to tackle barriers to growth, increase productivity and competitiveness. She said: “The UK already has a leading edge. We are home to some of the biggest names in the industry – and our small and medium sized companies demonstrate phenomenal skill, energy and innovation.”
Produmax is at Farnborough to promote its precision engineering expertise in complex components and assemblies, whose critical parts can be found in aeroplanes such as Boeing’s Dreamliner – where they play an essential role moving wing flaps.
Investment in advanced automated machines and a new purpose-built manufacturing plant has helped Produmax re-shore work previously carried out in low-cost economies, of which 80% is for export.
The company has overseen significant growth and expansion, culminating in a move to a new purpose-built manufacturing unit in Baildon, situated between Leeds and Bradford in West Yorkshire, and just a few weeks ago has secured an additional facility on the same site for further expansion.
The company guarantees quality products on time, every time, which is why repeat business is so common amongst Produmax customers. Produmax fully understands the needs of each individual customer, which means the team can help solve any engineering issue, regardless of the complexity.
Essentially, Produmax forms a one stop shop for its customers, with the ability to turn, mill, kit and assemble parts in-house.
