As the aerospace world descends on Farnborough this week, Pentaxia is attracting worldwide attention at its stand in Hall 2, with enquiries from a number of overseas manufacturers looking to develop long-term relationships.
Attracted by the ingenuity and quality of British engineering, this overseas market is keen to work with manufacturers who have the right expertise and long-term vision that they need. As early adopters of the AS9001 revision D quality accreditation, and working towards NADCAP over the next 12 months, Pentaxia is well placed to meet this fresh demand from the aerospace sector.
Managing director Stephen Ollier explained: “This is our first time at the Air Show, and we’ll definitely be coming back. This is a key part of our long-term vision to deliver far greater quantities of aerospace work, and looking around, it’s disappointing to see so few British companies represented, especially when the export opportunities look so promising. I think the problem may be that many companies are thinking in the short term, and the timescales in this sector are very long. We’re looking at the journey ahead and see aerospace as a big part of our future”.
“We’ve launched our trailblazer apprenticeship scheme at the show, and it’s a really important part of our strategy to meet the needs of those potential customers that we’ve begun talking to this week. By investing in both people and robots we are making sure that we’re ready for the demand to come, and we’re stepping up to the next level with our ambition to achieve NADCAP within a year.”
