Pentaxia has secured a supply deal with a UK company leading the world in the design and supply of military aircraft ejection seats.
Providing a strong platform for future growth, Pentaxia says its new contract provides components for Denham-based Martin-Baker’s life-saving ejection seats. Pentaxia has invested heavily in the latest state of the art composite press forming equipment to produce the high performance yet lightweight components. Finished to a high tolerance and specification, the seat components are designed to optimise space and minimise weight, both of which are at a premium in a cockpit environment.
Pentaxia’s Managing Director, Stephen Ollier, said, “This is good news for UK manufacturing and our aerospace sector. It’s also the biggest contract in our eight-year history and is the culmination of a mutually beneficial partnership between our two companies that has developed over the last year. There’s a lot of synergy between us; we’re both family-run firms and are committed to delivering high quality products that are utterly reliable. Our customers count on us to deliver on time, and by keeping every stage in-house, we have complete control over our manufacturing line and delivery.”
