Mettis Aerospace to build new factory in the UK

We’re delighted to announce that we are planning to build a new factory on our site in the UK in response to a number of multi-million-pound aerospace contracts we’ve been awarded recently.

The factory will enable the expansion of our machining business. We will be investing in six, new state-of-the-art machines which will be fully automated so they can process components 24/7. The advanced levels of automation will enable us to further reduce lead times for customers.

Components produced in our onsite forges will be machined in the factory. We’re proud to have such a large, integrated facility that can do so much in one location. It reduces processing and transporting time for customers.

The new factory will be the first new facility of this scale we’ve built in many years and demonstrates our commitment to manufacturing in the UK, creating jobs and investing in an exciting future.
