The five-year deal will see Velocity provide engineered structural and consumable material kits, with Aircelle making savings on material costs and improving productivity.

Founded with Aircelle’s support in 2007 as a three-man business, Velocity now employs 85 people on a 32,000 ft2 site and expects its regional workforce to exceed 100 early in 2015 along with a second site in the south of England.

“We’ve worked with Aircelle since we founded the business in 2007. Their support has been critical to our growth and we’re privileged to work with such a world class business,” said Chris Banks, Velocity Composites’ operations director. “We’re continuing to grow and that means we’re creating high quality well-paid jobs for people in east Lancashire.”
