FIA2016: Nasmyth Group to Consolidate Presence in the Defence Sector

Nasmyth Group uses Farnborough International Airshow as a showplace and build on an already strong and expanding position in the defence sector. Nasmyth illustrates and identifies its growing presence in the defence market on stand #H/60 in hall 4, featuring three interactive screens demonstrating its product capabilities across air, land and sea for defence, airframes, and jet engines. Nasmyth has a range of exhibits including a Flat Panel Flight Training Simulator designed and manufactured by the group that in its full form is approved for full standard pilot training.

The global Aerospace and Defence (A&D) industry is expected to return to growth in 2016 with total sector revenues estimated to grow at three percent, according to Deloitte's 2016 Global A&D sector outlook. For the past decade, those responsible for defence procurement have increasingly looked to the expertise of 'crossover' industries, particularly innovative technology firms which have the flexibility of successfully delivering products and services within short time frames. In light of this Nasmyth is ideally positioned to continue its growth in the defence market.

Nasmyth Group brings together the collective expertise, resources and technology of 13 precision engineering businesses in four specialised divisions - Systems and Defence, Metallics, Technologies and Metal Treatments. In Defence, Nasmyth manufactures airframe assemblies, engine and instrumentation components and performance-critical components for a variety of military applications. For example, Nasmyth directly contributes to UK national security by manufacturing engine components for the Eurofighter TYPHOON and supplying part of the inflight refuelling system for the BAE Systems HAWK trainer. Nasmyth is also involved in two ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK systems - the ARCIMS Mine Counter Measures (MCM) solution - a multi-role unmanned surface vehicle, and the Cerberus Mod2 Portable Diver Detection Sonar which is a diver detection system for harbour security.
