The defence industry has unique requirements in terms of component design, testing, verification and traceability, as well as particular contractual requirements involving long term price fixes, confidentiality agreements and support obligations.
Engineering & Developments has a long history in the supply of castings and machined components in support of major airborne, ground based and naval defence programmes. These have often begun with prototype development and pre-production batches through to series production often lasting several decades. With such a wide range of capability in-house, patterns and tooling can be carefully stored and methods locked down and retained for future use, often after considerable time intervals.
Operating an AS9100 quality system with in-house NDT, CNC CMM, spectrographic analysis and NDT, we are well equipped to meet the exacting challenges of the sector.
