Aerospace has experienced unprecedented recovery and growth since 2001. The advent of low cost airlines, coupled with a surge in long haul flights, numbers of airports, and the continuing development of military programs has made for a very buoyant sector.

Aerospace engine manufacturers have aggressively driven through technology improvements on new programs in shorter time scales, demanding increased technology support from their Suppliers. By focusing on design, procurement, assembly and test rather than component manufacture, OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) have also pushed greater sourcing responsibility on to the supply chain. Critical raw materials have been in short supply, which has driven costs upwards, whilst aero Customers continue to push for significant cost-downs.

The outcome is a consolidating supply chain which must be more flexible in it's response, more agile in it's outlook, and more agressive in it's drive towards improvements, efficiency and technology adoption. Nicholsons have continued to meet and exceed this challenge. providing engine and airframe sealing solutions for a worldwide OEM base.
