Defining the Aerospace & Defence industries:
Aerospace manufacturing is a high-technology industry that produces aircraft, guided missiles, space vehicles, aircraft engines, propulsion units, and related parts. Most of the industry is geared toward governmental work, although commercial airlines are the other significant industry segment.

The Aerospace & Defense industry is dominated by large Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), although there are many high quality smaller companies who provide support services including parts and sub-assemblies. Electronic, hardware and software components of defense, which include companies such as THALES, are clients.

The aircraft parts industry was born out of the sale of second-hand or used aircraft parts from the aerospace manufacturing sector. Many commercial airlines contract out services associated with supporting themselves (eg Catering, maintenance, cleaning, ground operations).

Confidentiality is vital:
As an independent firm, we are free to approach potential candidates without prematurely revealing our client’s identity.

Our structured and phased approaches are key to our historically high success rate for transactions.
