Aerospace & Composites
We have specialist capabilities in the aerospace and composites sectors. These include design, manufacture and installation of automated machinery, manufacturing systems and equipment.
With state-of-the-art technology, combined with the elite skills and experience of our engineering teams, we can provide a full range of tailored machines, systems and processes to meet the exacting standards demanded by the aerospace and composites industries. In this fast moving environment, we have the necessary flexibility and capability to give our customers a competitive edge.
At the Forefront of Innovation
'We are continuously investing in research and development. For carbon fibre composite forming in the aerospace and automotive sectors, we have successfully produced prototype machinery for proof of concepts, often resulting in innovative production machinery.
We have further developed this production machinery with patented technology designed to reduce the cost of manufacture whilst improving the quality and finish of the parts.
"WIS Group have been an important partner for Bombardier over many years across multiple sites. Their collaborative approach combined with their technical innovation, can-do attitude and multi-discipline engineering support has resulted in numerous successful projects being delivered across our manufacturing processes"
