AVS-SYS has completed its move to a new and larger manufacturing site, located just south of Manchester, UK, which provides the space and facilities needed as the company expands the scale and scope of its operations.
Previously solely occupied by pharmaceutical giant, Astra Zenenca, the Alderley Park, Cheshire, site has been redeveloped as a hub for high tech companies from across North West England. The new AVS-SYS facility has undergone a complete refurbishment to accommodate a larger staff of specialists and the world class equipment needed to assist in the design, manufacture and testing of advanced composite materials.
According to AVS-SYS, it has been well respected in the aerospace industry for over a decade for its strengths in design engineering and project management across a wide range of aircraft types and during this time it has evolved to become a full spectrum company capable of delivering projects from initial design through R&D and manufacturing. AVS-SYS adds that it is one of few companies able to offer full system design and integration for aerospace air distribution systems and provide a level of expertise that is unmatched outside of a major aircraft manufacturer.
Managing Director of AVS-SYS, Paul Heaton, commented, “The relocation to Alderley Park is just a part of our wider strategy to grow and evolve as a company. To expand our manufacturing capability we need room so that we can deliver our innovative, advanced composites on a greater scale than ever before, while maintaining our commitment to quality and design excellence.”
