Boeing Approval Tops Record Year of Growth for Newbow Aerospace

Newbow Aerospace reports a record year of growth topped off by achieving approved supplier status from Boeing.

In response to a significant uptick in demand for bespoke manufactured ground support equipment, supplied to more than 300 airline, airport and MRO customers world-wide, a record for the Redditch-based business, Newbow’s in-house team of fabricators and technicians delivered a productivity level which eclipsed the company’s best performance prior to the pandemic, the company says.

For the construction of the company’s signature wheel and brake change trailers and nitrogen/oxygen service carts, Newbow utilized more than 41,000 kg of steel and calibrated more than 2,000 aircraft tire pressure gauges.

With a strong order book for Q1 2024, Newbow’s supplier approval from Boeing will further strengthen the company’s reputation as a leading expert in ground support equipment manufacture and tire pressure gauges, which began more than half a century ago, when the business was founded in 1964.

“The past twelve months for Newbow Aerospace has reflected the continued post-pandemic recovery in commercial aviation, supported by the forecast from IATA, suggesting that some 4.7 billion people are expected to fly this year, which exceeds the pre-pandemic level of 4.5 billion in 2019,” said Marc Green, Newbow Aerospace sales director. “Coupled with discussions we’ve had with our customers both existing and prospective, we face 2024 with cautious optimism that this upward trend will continue.”
