Nacelle manufacturer Aircelle has handed out awards to six suppliers at its annual awards for excellence at the Farnborough Airshow.

The six suppliers are: JPR and Jehier of the Hutchinson group, Alcore, Hartwell of the McKechnie group, Firth Rixson Forged Metals and Exotic Metals Forming Company.

"Aircelle's ability to meet the performance and delivery schedules for its nacelle systems depends directly on the capabilities of our supply chain," says Aircelle's chairman & CEO Vincent Mascré. "The suppliers who are recognised with our latest awards have contributed to Aircelle's success through significant efforts within their own companies, and we are pleased to acknowledge their excellence."

The awards are based on criteria that include quality, on-time delivery, engineering capabilities and cost reduction initiatives.
