Boeing approval tops record year of growth for Newbow
Posted on 19th January 2024
Leading UK manufacturer of aviation ground support equipment, Newbow Aerospace, has topped off a record year of growth by achieving approved supplier status from Boeing.
In response to a significant uptick in demand for bespoke manufactured ground support equipment, supplied to more than 300 airline, airport and MRO customers world-wide, a record for the Redditch-based business, Newbow’s in-house team of fabricators and technicians delivered a productivity level which eclipsed the company’s best performance prior to the pandemic.
For the construction of the company’s signature wheel and brake change trailers and nitrogen/oxygen service carts, Newbow utilised more than 41,000 kg of steel and calibrated more than 2,000 aircraft tyre pressure gauges.
With a strong order book for Q1 2024, Newbow’s supplier approval from Boeing will further strengthen the company’s reputation as a leading expert in ground support equipment manufacture and tyre pressure gauges, which began more than half a century ago, when the business was founded in 1964.
Commenting on the approval from Boeing and looking at the year ahead, Newbow Aerospace sales director, 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, suggesting that some 4.7 billion people are expected to fly this year, which 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.”
