Martin Aerospace ( was founded 25 years ago; it supplies thousands of different quality-critical precision-machined components, including engine fastenings and crankshafts, to aerospace companies such as Rolls-Royce and Pattonair.

Managing director William Martin said: “Having established a reputation for quality and delivery, Martin has grown to 80 employees and now wants to accelerate its business growth further.

“SiG will help the company to become more competitive, so that we can win £20 million in contracts by 2022.”

SiG CEO Andy Page said: “With the commercial-aircraft order book at a record high, the UK has a huge opportunity to increase its share of the global aerospace market.

“Increased productivity, skills and capability are essential for ambitious suppliers like Martin Aerospace to win the world-wide competition on quality, cost and delivery.”
