North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA) has its largest presence ever at this year's Farnborough in a prime-location pavilion in Hall 1 incorporating five separate stands.

It plays host to more than 50 companies at Stand D10, giving NWAA members the platform to showcase their aerospace knowledge, products and expertise.

They cover all aspects of production from aerostructures to aeroengines through to avionics, equipment and support services.

NWAA membership covers the breadth of aerospace activity, from the prime contractors such as BAE Systems, Airbus and Rolls-Royce, through the supply chain to small subcontractors.


Last year the association's members produced £7 billion in aerospace output - a third of the UK total UK - supporting more than 60,000 direct jobs in the region.

As such, the NWAA acts as the catalyst for its members to form strategic partnerships that allow them to innovate, share risk and derive the benefits of larger work packages and contracts.

NWAA chairman Dennis G Mendoros says: "We represent the largest group of aerospace companies in the UK with more than 1,000 aerospace and high technology engineering industries in the north-west region.

"Having an area dedicated to NWAA members means that no matter what the size of the company, we can provide space for them to exhibit."

The area is 10 times the size the NWAA took when it first exhibited at Farnborough a decade ago.

Mendoros adds: "England's North-West provides world-class aerospace manufacturing, combining investment in the latest technologies with the outstanding skills and technical know-how of its people.
