Backing British success
Britain’s defence industry is now a vibrant and expanding part of the national economy. A recent snapshot survey found that the sector currently employs approximately 150,000 highly-skilled people nationwide. Together, they help to generate a combined turnover of more than £23 billion, including export orders of around £6 billion. The same report notes that some three-quarters of UK security sector companies anticipate domestic and export market growth to Europe, North America and the Middle East. In this demanding market, where failures under operational conditions are totally unacceptable, Jones Nuttall’s expertise and experience allow us to play a key role. Working to exacting tolerances and high specifications is fundamental to defence procurement. In a recent example, which confidentiality prevents us from naming, we produced and delivered a series of fuse-holders and their covers milled from solid aluminium blocks to accuracies of 0.001mm. Coating finishes also had to match precisely. Additionally, the third-party sub-contractor customer was only authorised to give final approval if components met drawing specifications precisely. We provided full material traceability and inspection reports. For small volumes and large volumes to unique requirements , Jones Nuttall is equipped to provide a complete intergrated engineering service under one roof.
