Together with four other companies in Northern Ireland we are taking on the challenge to ‘move up the supply chain’. Base, Denroy, Moyola, Dontaur and Hutchinson Aerotech are doing what no other local aerospace cluster – at least in the UK – has attempted.
Causeway Aero has been in the melting pot for quite some time now and this week at the Farnborough Airshow we are having a very exciting time as it is the official launch of the venture. Causeway Aero Ltd. is now trading and will be the single point of contract for the combined design and manufacturing contracts that it is already in the process of securing. This single trading entity is unique amongst similar collaborative ventures and in direct response to the feedback the launch team have received from a number of OEM companies and industry experts
Invest Northern Ireland have been very supportive in this initiative which has been borne out of a collaborative network going under the same name. You can hear what Paul Shields, who has been facilitating the process and listen to our own Pete Hinds, Denroy’s Kevin McNamee and John Rainey outline the need and opportunity that Causeway Aero Ltd. is on course to meet in this case study video:
The Belfast Telegraph ran a great article all about it too.
