Arville, the technical textile weaver, will be presenting its specialist capabilities directly to UK aerospace manufacturers, as part of a major tours. One of a small number of key suppliers handpicked to take centre stage, the company will be part of the two-week ADS Defence and Aerospace Technology Roadshow this September.
The tour will be calling at strategic UK defence and aerospace sites and it is an opportunity to present the latest innovations and developments directly to high-level decision makers within the aerospace industry. Visits are planned to Rolls-Royce in Derby, Leonardo (Selex) in Luton, Thales in Crawley, BAE or Airbus in Bristol, Cobham Mission Systems in Wimborne, Ultra PALS in Cheltenham, Leonardo in Yeovil and GE Aviation in Cheltenham.
Arville has been weaving fabrics for over 60 years and is looking forward to speaking directly with key personnel in research and development, technical and design roles about its capabilities to produce bespoke fabrics. Its fabrics are engineered to be lighter, stronger and offer increasingly more sophisticated physical characteristics.
“The ADS Roadshow event is a real opportunity to make supplier resource more accessible to UK aerospace players. We anticipate that our involvement will help lead to further growth and integration of Arville fabrics at the initial design stages of major projects,” said Andy Smith, Group head of marketing at Arville.
“Decision makers, designers and specifiers from the large players in these sectors are not always aware of just what can be achieved, in terms of textiles developed especially with their application in mind,” he added.
Due to its expertise in technical textiles, Arville has managed to create a well established reputation as a specialist in the field that led to an extensive customer base, covering more than 50 countries worldwide.
