Farnborough International Airshow
Yorkshire-based industrial gaskets specialist Klinger is to exhibit for the first time at this year’s Farnborough International Airshow.
Klinger, which earlier this year announced its aim to become a leading supplier to the dynamic aerospace and defence industry, will use the iconic global aviation event as a platform to showcase its industry leading gasket technology. Between 19- 25th July, close to 1500 exhibitors from the private, commercial, civil and military sectors will showcase and demonstrate aircraft, equipment and technologies.
Already the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of quality sealing products for the global oil and gas industry, Klinger is investing more than £3 million in new technology to meet the bespoke requirements of the aerospace and defence sector.
Alan Bates, Managing Director, comments: “Our continued investment in skilled engineers and operators, technology, research and plant, has been vital to meeting the stringent quality specifications of major global enterprises such as Shell and BP to give us international market leadership in the oil and gas industry. Yorkshire made gaskets are now in operation on oil rigs, gas platforms, refineries and chemical plants across Europe, the Middle East, Far East and Australia.
“We now aim to achieve that same market leadership in new and emerging markets, primarily in aerospace and defence. We plan to build and expand on our already existing international client base, which will enable us to grow and develop further.”
Klinger has invested in the latest optical measuring equipment, water-jet cutting technology and high-precision knife-cutting equipment to meet the bespoke requirements of the sector. Employing 130 specialist engineers, operators and support staff, the Yorkshire team manages distribution partnerships across the UK and in more than eight countries, including Kazakhstan, Egypt and Qatar.
Klinger will be exhibiting in Hall 4, Stand FT2.
