Aircelle and Velocity Composites Sign Major New Deal

Aircelle has signed a 5 year deal with Velocity Composites whereby Velocity will provide engineered structural and consumable material kits, with Aircelle making significant savings on material costs and improving productivity.

Aircelle’s Managing Director, Stephane Cueille, said “We are delighted to sign this deal with Velocity Composites. They have worked with Aircelle since their formation and this deal demonstrates both how far they have progressed, and also our great confidence in their processes. Velocity will provide a first class service that will enable Aircelle to be more competitive and will ensure that our customers can rely on us!”

According to the companies, the partnership is a significant milestone in the growth of Velocity. Founded with Aircelle’s support in 2007 as a three-man business, Velocity now employs 85 people on a 32,000 square feet site and expects its regional workforce to exceed 100 early in 2015 along with a second site in the south of England.

Chris Banks, Velocity Composites’ Operations Director, said “We’ve worked with Aircelle since we founded the business in 2007. Their support has been critical to our growth and we’re privileged to work with such a world class business. We’re continuing to grow and that means we’re creating high quality well-paid jobs for people in east Lancashire. Velocity is the epitome of the high growth manufacturing businesses that will help the UK to rebalance the economy.”
