One of the more delicate products that we are involved in at AFT Fluorotec is the manufacture of precision components for communication devices used in the aerospace & defence industry. A large consideration involves the detail of how such parts have to be exported.
The UK actually supplies extensively into the aerospace & defence industry, and as a leading expert in plastic component production, we often produce plastic parts that are often used in electronic communication devices. However, producing the part is only part of the solution. Many companies that can make the parts for these devices simply cannot export them due to not having the required government approvals and licencing from both the UK and the destination country.
That’s where we come in. SW Plastics division of AFT Fluorotec have those approvals and the expertise to perform aerospace & defence exports, under the OGEL or SIEL platforms. If we add in our AS9100d certification, we are very well placed to serve this industry in the UK and abroad, and we do just that!
A large portion of the manufactured parts within the SW plastics division of AFT Fluorotec are indeed for defence applications all over the world. Whether it's the supply of OEM parts for older aircraft, or components to be used in electronic communication and radar equipment, we always deliver the right solution to our customers.
Our team of engineers can machine a whole range of components due to our 10 axis machining capabilities. And we can then export legitimately wherever they need to go.
