Vector Aerospace Corporation, a global independent provider of aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, is proud to announce that its Component Services team, based in Almondbank, Perth, has been officially accepted onto the UK’s Sharing in Growth (SiG) programme.
SiG is an ambitious transformation programme which raises the capability of UK aerospace suppliers in order to share in the growth of aerospace and other global markets. The £250 million government- and industry-backed competitiveness improvement programme aims to secure 10,000 jobs, by transforming the leadership, culture, productivity and operational performance of more than 60 UK aerospace suppliers.
Vector Aerospace’s Component Services team was accepted onto the programme after a stringent 12-week diagnostic phase, which concluded with a formal presentation to Directors of the SiG Board. Feedback on Vector’s presentation was very positive, noting the clarity of Vector’s growth plan and the capability and enthusiasm of the Vector team.
Commenting on the announcement, Ray Doyle, Director of Vector’s Component Services team, said: “I would like to thank all of the team within Vector who worked so hard in the weeks and months leading up to the presentation to the SiG leadership at the end of April. The general consensus was that our presentation was one of the most compelling that the SiG team had seen.
“Going forward, this is a great opportunity for Almondbank. The programme, which lasts for a period of four years, brings with it around £1.2 million of investment from UK plc, and will enable us to continue the transformation of our business into a truly ‘world class’ component MRO facility.”
