Defence Security Equipment International (DSEI) London
The Denroy team have been reflecting on what was a hugely successful event at DSEI 2023, ExCeL London.
Denroy was proud to be one of ten companies from Northern Ireland exhibiting at the Defence Security Equipment International (DSEI), the world’s largest sea, air and space biennial defence and security exhibition. Northern Ireland has a rich engineering heritage and opportunity to leverage the untapped potential for the defence industry. Defence, security and aerospace are priority sectors for Northern Ireland and are worth over £1.9bn per annum to the economy. There are over 100 companies in the sector, employing in excess of 7,000 people.
Denroy is one of the world’s leading innovators in the design and manufacture of engineered polymer components offering an integrated design, tooling and manufacturing operation providing clients with a single source solution from concept design to full volume production. Deemed to be specialists in lightweighting, metal replacement and EMI shielding / plating, Denroy is the only injection moulding supplier to the Eurofighter Typhoon, with over 150 parts on the platform. The company also supplies a broad range of high-volume polymer components, such as ammunition containers, trigger mechanisms and missile system components.
Specialising in defence applications, Denroy already supplies highly engineered polymer components for both land and air platforms to several OEMs. This includes Thales’s LMM (Lightweight Multirole Missile) system and NLAW (Next generation Light Anti-tank Weapon) as well as Aerospace OEMs and Tier 1s including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Spirit & GKN.
The company has been supplying the defence sector for many years and prides itself on holding the ADS 21st Century Supply Chain Gold Award (SC21) accreditation for six consecutive years.
With expertise and experience in high performance thermoplastics, Denroy showcases exceptional standards with >99.9% precision engineering quality and >99.5% on-time in-full delivery performance.
DSEI was a busy four-day event where Denroy was able to showcase the wealth of experience and expertise that the business has in supplying parts for the defence sector.
DSEI places defence and security product manufacturers directly in front of military and specialist procurement teams from across the globe.
It’s a gilt-edged opportunity to reach key personnel by using pioneering presentations, power networking events, theatre briefings, VIP programmes, and a complete framework of activity designed to enhance exhibitors’ business development.
DSEI 2023 saw the most significant and largest iteration of the show in its 24-year history. While tackling the theme of ‘Achieving an Integrated Force’, it highlighted the importance of integration across the six operational domains of Air, Cyber, electromagnetic activities (CEMA), Land, Sea and Space.
Featuring over 2,800 defence and security suppliers, including major prime manufacturers plus more than 230 new exhibitors, DSEI was the premier hybrid event of its kind and played a crucial role in bringing governments, the armed forces and the wider industry together.
The Denroy team were also delighted to welcome a host of VIPs to the Denroy stand: Lord Dominic Johnston (Minister for Investment, Department for Business and Trade), Avril Joliffe (Director General for Industry, Trade and Economic Security, UK MOD), Maria Laine (President of Boeing UK, Ireland and Nordic region), John Healey (MP, the Shadow Secretary of State for Defence), Sir Michael Ryan (VP, Spirit AeroSystems UK), Philip McBride (MD, Thales Belfast) and Angus Cameron (UK Business Director – Advanced Weapon Systems, Thales UK). Along with representatives from BAE Systems, MBDA Systems and Raytheon UK.
With a world-class engineering team at Denroy, and through our continual investment in new technology, Denroy remains at the forefront of engineered polymer advances.
