Bangor based plastics company Denroy have welcomed the announcement of their SC21 (Supply Chain for the 21st Century) award announced by Minister Arlene Foster at today’s ADS conference in Belfast. The awards were presented at the new ‘Titanic Belfast’ building during the national SC21 Task Force conference.
With aerospace industry growth firmly dependent on robust supply chains, SC21 is proving to be a critical vehicle required to deliver industrial competitiveness. SC21 aims to improve UK aerospace and defence industry suppliers in areas such as business excellence, manufacturing excellence and quality and delivery. SC21 is governed and managed by ADS Group Ltd (the UK’s aerospace, defence, security and space trade organisation) on behalf of the industry.
Chairman John Rainey said that this is the latest in a line of significant events for Denroy, which has seen its recent growth consolidated, with new, and significant orders close to being announced.
“Denroy has celebrated its 40th anniversary in style this year through the development of new markets, the achievement of new orders and now with the confirmation of its SC21 status. This is a hugely significant development for our company as it now sets us up to go after significant new work in the near future”.
ANNOUNCEMENT MADE BY FIRST MINISTER AT FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW
The First Minister Peter Robinson and DETI Minister Arlene Foster have congratulated Bangor-based plastics moulding company, Denroy, on its achievement in accessing significant funds for a pioneering research and development project.
Speaking at the Farnborough Air Show, First Minister Peter Robinson announced that Denroy Plastics will be the lead partner in a consortium comprising industry market leaders AIRBUS & 5M and scientific & technological research organisations MatRI, UK and ITA, Spain.
The EC-funded project aims to develop a process to injection mould thermoplastic composite components for aerospace structural applications. A successful implementation of this process will put Denroy at the forefront of ground-breaking technology opportunities for the aerospace industry. The target areas will be the replacement of small-to-medium sized machined aluminium, titanium and hand lay-up thermoset composite components.
Peter Robinson said,
“It’s always a delight to come to Farnborough and see how local Northern Ireland companies are competing on the world stage. Denroy has spent the last 40 years building up an unrivalled knowledge in plastics moulding and they should be warmly congratulated on this achievement. This company does the vast majority of its business outside Northern Ireland and is regarded as a world leader in its field. I’m delighted to announce this achievement and look forward to hearing how this company, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, plans to grow in the future.”
Denroy’s Chairman, John Rainey, said the accessing of the funds will now lead the company into a new era of co-operation with international partners and research and development organisations.
“Denroy has been quietly building a robust and forward-looking business over the last 40 years and we are proud to be the lead partner in what promises to be a new and exciting field of research. The development of this new process will offer significant advantages in widening the scope for component design, faster production rates and lower energy consumption per component produced. We look forward to the successful conclusion to this project and all it will mean to Denroy”.
