Tungaloy UK joins WEAF and MAA

Member News

As part of its strategic drive to penetrate the aerospace market, Tungaloy UK has joined both the Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA) and the West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF).

Tungaloy’s expertise and product lines will now be introduced to members of both organisations through networking and events. As proud members of both the WEAF Aerospace & Defence Networking Group and the Midlands Aerospace Alliance, Tungaloy will be actively participating in events and collaborative projects to further raise awareness of the Japanese cutting tool brand.

WEAF is a trade organisation focused on all aspects of aerospace and defence, with a partner base representing everything from SMEs to global corporations. It is acknowledged as one of the largest aerospace and defence associations in Europe.

MAA represents one of the world’s biggest aerospace clusters – being the home location to nearly 25% of the UK aerospace industry, 7% of Europe’s and 3% of the world’s aerospace sector. More than 300 organisations belong to the MAA, ranging from global players Meggitt, Moog Aircraft Group, Rolls-Royce and UTC Aerospace Systems to small supply chain companies and key regional partners.

Following success in the UK and global aerospace sector, Tungaloy has extensive knowledge and experience of the global aviation and defence sectors. By joining both organisations, Tungaloy is looking to transfer its expertise, knowledge base and product lines to members of the two groups.

Tungaloy UK managing director, Rob Werhun commented: “Tungaloy has an exceptional reputation and track record in the global aerospace industry and this is lesser known in the UK. By joining the Midlands Aerospace Alliance and the West of England Aerospace Forum, we are making a concerted effort to introduce everyone from small subcontractors through to OEMs to the Tungaloy solutions for turning, milling, drilling and grooving, which are particularly vital to aerospace manufacturers in their pursuit of quality, performance, and innovation.

“Developed by aerospace experts working for generations with aviation and defence OEMs, the Tungaloy product lines are destined to provide huge benefits to the UK aero sector. By joining these prestigious groups, Tungaloy will be building relationships with this key marketplace.”
