Posted 29 June 2018 · Add Comment

Stars of the South West aerospace and defence sector were celebrated at the second WEAF Aerospace Ambassadors Awards under the wings of Concorde at Aerospace Bristol.

Organised by the West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF), the annual awards focus on the cream of the industry and shine a spotlight on their outstanding achievements.  

Backed by headline sponsors Safran and SKF Aerospace, the awards attracted scores of entries, which presented the judging panel of independent and recognised experts a very pleasant problem – how to choose the best from the best!

The South West has one of the largest concentrations of aerospace and defence capabilities in Europe, and is the largest aerospace cluster in the UK, worth more than £7 billion per annum.

Adrian Harding, Business Development Manager of WEAF, a membership trade organisation for aerospace and defence companies in the South West, said: “Congratulations to all the winners of the second Aerospace Ambassador Awards – the brightest and best in the South West’s aerospace and defence sectors!  And a well done to all the individuals who were shortlisted – the judges had an extremely difficult job, such was the quality of nominations. The South West is a nest of innovation in engineering and manufacturing, and the individuals who have won these awards demonstrate this perfectly.”
