A Redditch-based aviation business has topped off a successful year of growth by securing approval from a world-famous firm. 

Staff at leading UK manufacturer, Newbow Aerospace, were delighted to achieve approved supplier status from Boeing in a move set to boost its order book for 2024. 

The company supplied more than 300 airline, airport and MRO customers worldwide this year and saw the productivity of its in-house team of fabricators and technicians eclipse the firm's best performance before the pandemic.

Sales Director at Newbow Aerospace, Marc Green, said: "The past twelve months for Newbow Aerospace has reflected the continued post-pandemic recovery in commercial aviation supported by the forecast from IATA which suggests that some 4.7 billion people are expected to fly this year. 

"This exceeds the pre-pandemic level of 4.5 billion in 2019. Coupled with discussions we've had with our customers, both existing and prospective, we face 2024 with cautious optimism that this upward trend will continue." 

For the construction of the company's signature wheel and brake change trailers and nitrogen and oxygen service carts, Newbow Aerospace utilised more than 41,000 kg of steel and calibrated more than 2,000 aircraft tyre pressure gauges. 

Founded in 1964 and with a strong order book for the first quarter of 2024, the company hopes that getting supplier approval will help continue to strengthen the company's reputation.
