​The Lancashire Enterprise Partnership and Lancashire County Council will join together as ‘Aerospace Lancashire’.

Aerospace Lancashire’s stand is alongside a range of the county’s aerospace companies and suppliers, including Hurst Green Plastics from Whalley, Valuechain from Lancaster, Clitheroe’s Granada Material Handling, Blackburn’s Castle Metals, RuleIQ from Nelson, Burnley’s Hycrome Aerospace and Senior Aerospace from Earby.

A number of major international companies with a significant Lancashire presence will also be exhibiting, including Kaman, Safran-Aircelle, Magellan, Rolls-Royce and BAE Systems.

Aerospace Lancashire, will be part of a North West aerospace presence at Farnborough facilitated by the North West Aerospace Alliance trade association.
