Extracts from the Aerospace Growth Partnership ‘Flying High – One Year On From Lifting Off’ document featuring Sharing in Growth and how we are is helping to strengthen the capabilities of aerospace supply chains…
The Aerospace Growth Partnership ‘Flying High – One Year On From Lifting Off’ document sets out how the Aerospace Growth Partnership is delivering against the industrial strategy it published in March 2013. It sets out many real examples of the whole of Government working with the whole of the sector to deliver long-term growth for the UK. I have seen first-hand how this work is helping companies of all sizes – SME, mid-cap and large – and spanning the whole of the UK, to help deliver growth and prosperity in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This continuing effort will ensure that Britain develops the efficient and environmentally friendly aircraft of the future, while keeping highly-skilled manufacturing jobs here in the UK.
“The Sharing in Growth (SiG) programme delivers significant capability improvements, tailored to the specific needs of supplier companies, so they can achieve the highest levels of performance required by their customers. AGP is exploring how the programme can be expanded more widely to deliver growth. This work is complementary to well established foundation programmes such as SC21 (Supply Chains for the 21st Century). Improving manufacturing capability is one of the main drivers for supply chain competitiveness. AGP aims to embed industry’s combined knowledge into these improvement programmes to capture experience in all aspects of manufacturing design, technology, processes, automation and skills development. Companies will then be able to access these enablers to build world class facilities in the shortest time possible.”

“Sharing in Growth, an ambitious performance improvement programme, has also been established to strengthen capabilities of aerospace supply chains. It is a £120 million initiative supported by £50 million from the Regional Growth Fund with around 35 companies participating so far.”
