FOR AEROSPACE AND DEFENCE

The UK aerospace and defence sector is very diverse, and includes manufacturers of civil and military aircraft and systems, space technology and satellites and military vehicles and weapon systems.

Gloucestershire, where Broxton is based, has 50% more employees engaged in the advanced engineering sector than the national average. This means we are rich in highly skilled engineers, many of whom have previously trained with some of the biggest names in avionics worldwide such as Messier Dowty and GE Aviation.

Broxton supplies predominantly precision machined components into this sector, including parts for missile launch systems, Fighting Vehicles, Satellites, and Drones.

MEETING COMPLEX SPECIFICATIONS

Broxton has all the technical and process expertise but without the overhead required to maintain AS9100 quality management systems. This is perfect for aerospace and defence parts where a well-developed and effective ISO9001 quality system will suffice. This means we can often provide a more responsive and agile service couple with a lower cost achieved through reduced overhead.

Typically, this sector demands highly specified parts (dimensionally high tolerance, specified machined surface finishes, generally more complex geometries) which conform to specification through validation and traceability. Material and treatment certificates, First Article Inspection Reports and Certificate of Conformity can be provided on request.

Detailed measurement reports can be produced efficiently with our modern CNC CMM, which can be programmed to accurately measure parts automatically (unmanned) with individually inspection reports.
