Hampson Industries’ US-based Aerospace Composites & Transparencies division has been awarded a new contract to design and manufacture light weight mandrel tools for carbon fibre lay-up for a major commercial aerospace programme, worth USD 53 million (£34 million).

Work will be undertaken at the Group’s recently enlarged, California-based, Coast Composites, Inc. and Composites Horizons, Inc. facilities as well as at Detroit-based, Odyssey Industries, Inc.

Hampson’s Chairman, Chris Geoghegan, commented: “We are delighted to have secured this high value tooling contract after some months of delays in the conversion of our strong quote pipeline into firm orders. “

“This is the second significant contract signed in recent weeks following on from the USD 10 million (£6.5 million) contract received in August. This latest win reflects Hampson’s unique ability, as market leader, to provide a fully-integrated, one-stop technology solution in light-weight, precision tooling. This involves not only the lay-up of large, high temperature, very tight tolerance composite structures but also the deployment of high speed machining capacity and specialist fabrication expertise across three of our North American facilities.”

“This contract follows many months of outstanding work by our people against a challenging market backdrop. It attests to the strength and depth of our technical capabilities in advanced composite materials and our ability to offer our global customers a unique value proposition using the latest available material and tooling technology.”
