As a member of the NWAA,
welcome to the 2012/2013
edition of the North West
Aerospace Alliance guide to
member capabilities.
The NWAA is continuing its
development as an organisation
to offer products and services to
its membership, representative
of the expectations, needs and
quality demanded of the UK
aerospace industry.
With the aerospace supply
chain evolving to reflect the
emerging civil aerospace
markets of the far and middle
east, and the evolving strategies
of national and international
defence markets, it is vital
that the NWAA continually
recognises the services its
members are seeking to support
this evolution.
The civil aerospace market is in
growth whilst defence remains
Welcome
The NWAA is developing
collaborative processes as part
of its supply chain development
work in order to offer
opportunities to challenge for
the larger work packages being
made available through the
primes and tier 1 companies.
I would encourage you to
engage with the NWAA, to take
advantage of the wide range
of services we can offer. Some
of our products are unique and
we offer the strongest centre of
aerospace supply chain expertise
of any aerospace association in
Europe and probably beyond.
We look forward to a long and
productive relationship.

somewhat flat. Through the
national Aerospace Growth
Partnership the strategy to
ensure UK aerospace maintains
its position as second only
to the United States is being
developed. Strands of this work
include skills, technology and
supply chain and there are
strong signals from Government
that aerospace and advanced
engineering figure highly in the
balanced economy and that all
these elements need nurturing
and investment to thrive in the
face of global competition.
We need as an industry to
capitalise on this increased
support by demonstrating our
collective capability.
The supply chain is beginning
to recognise the value of
collaboration, and this guide
will assist in identifying
capability.
