Cutting-tool company joins two aerospace groupsAs part of its strategic drive to better serve the aerospace market, the Wolverhampton-based cutting-tool company Tungaloy UK Ltd ( has joined both the Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA) and the West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF) and will be actively participating in events and collaborative projects to further raise awareness of the Japanese cutting-tool brand.

The WEAF is a trade organisation focused on all aspects of aerospace and defence; it has a partner base that represents everything from SMEs to global corporations, and it is acknowledged as being one of the largest aerospace and defence associations in Europe.

The MAA represents one of the world’s biggest aerospace clusters, with the Midlands being home for nearly 25% of the aerospace industry in the UK, 7% of Europe’s and 3% of the world’s. More than 300 organisations belong to the MAA.

Commenting on joining the WEAF and the MAA, Tungaloy UK managing director Rob Werhun said: “While Tungaloy has a strong reputation and track record in the global aerospace industry, it is lesser known in the UK.

“By joining the MAA and WEAF, we are making a concerted effort to introduce everyone — from small sub-contractors through to OEMs — to Tungaloy tooling solutions.”
