Two Sharing in Growth beneficiaries have been selected to appear in the Government’s annual Parliamentary Reviews.
Senior Aerospace Bird Bellows (SABB) is featured in the Aerospace, Defence and Security Review, while JJ Churchill is in the Construction and Engineering Review. Both reports include a foreword by Prime Minister Rt Hon Theresa May MP and give perspectives from journalists, politicians and industrialists on the years 2017 to 2018.
Each aims to share best practice amongst over 500,000 policymakers, business leaders and other stakeholders, and is launched with a reception at the Palace of Westminster for all participants.
The Aerospace, Defence and Security Review also includes a foreword by Paul Everitt, Chief Executive of ADS Group, who says: “There is an opportunity to benefit from the production of the more than 14,000 aircraft now on global order books, and of future models not yet developed. To do so we must maximise our competitiveness, continue to invest in productivity improvements and enjoy the benefits of smooth access to our most important overseas markets.”
The SABB feature explains that the company is on every Airbus commercial aerospace platform and has grown consistently year-on-year since 2002.
CEO John Stewart explains that Sharing in Growth is helping to accelerate SABB’s growth. He says: “Paramount to maintaining its competitive edge, SABB engineering provides innovative design-to-cost solutions. These include developing efficient manufacturing processes and investing in advanced system technologies to support ever-evolving aircraft performance criteria.”
The JJ Churchill article celebrated the Market Bosworth-based companies 80th anniversary and looked at its rich history as well as its future prospects. The company was founded by Walter Churchill on Christmas Day 1937 and was involved in the early development of gas turbines and jet engines. After Walter’s plan was tragically shot down during the Siege of Malta in 1942, his wife Joyce, grandmother of current executive chairman Andrew Churchill, ran the company.
The company currently employs around 150 staff and has a £20 million annual turnover. Said Andrew: “We continue to substantially invest in people, technology and innovation. With our order book already at well over £100 million, the future looks bright.”
