Gardner Aerospace announces new contracts with Airbus and GKN Aerospace

Derby’s Gardner Aerospace, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of aerospace detailed parts and sub-assemblies, is celebrating three new business deals with GKN Aerospace and several new contract awards with the global manufacturing giant Airbus.

Gardner Aerospace will now supply GKN Aerospace with engine pylon secondary structure sub-assemblies. Work on the project will be carried out at the company’s facilities in Derby and Hull (both UK), Mazères (France), Mielec and Tczew (both Poland). It will also supply GKN with shroud box sub-assemblies with the work due to take place at Gardner’s facilities in Derby, Mielec and Tczew as well as wingtip and winglet navigation light housings out of its Mazeres and Tczew operations.

Dominic Cartwright, chief executive officer, Gardner Aerospace, says: “I am thrilled to be able to announce these new multi-million USD long term awards for a range of aircraft programmes which also sees new approvals being gained by our operations in Mazeres and Tczew thus broadening the companies scope of customer and process offerings.

The new contact awards with Airbus are valued at over $70m include work packages resulting from Airbus’s D2P (detailed parts partner) commodity-based consolidation programme and are for both machined and sheet metal products.

Dominic Cartwright, says: “Airbus named Gardner Aerospace as one of only eight leading suppliers of detailed parts in 2018, an accolade we are extremely proud of. These new deals prove the strength of our relationship with the OEM and it’s great to see Airbus showing so much confidence in our business, particularly as we start to plan operations with their support in China.

“We always seek feedback from our clients to understand how we can better meet their needs in the future. These repeat deals with Airbus prove that approach is working very well.”
