With the Farnborough International Airshow 2014 acting as a shop window to the global aerospace industry, Denton Clutterbuck, Head of Aerospace and Defence at Altran UK, explores the current state of UK aerospace manufacturing in an article published in the June 2014 issue of Aerospace Manufacturing.
The piece reviews the range of funding programmes that have been developed to support the growth of UK aerospace manufacturing, including AGP and NATEP, and argues that a long-term approach to investment both at Government level and among financial institutions will also be key to ensuring a prosperous outlook for the sector.
