The Coventry and Warwickshire Aerospace Forum a collective of 13 businesses from across the area with a combined annual turnover of more than £65 million – has joined Coventry City of Culture Trust’s 2021 Club. The decision by CWAF means the 2021 Club reached 100 members before the bid was put in to the judges.

A successful group of world-class manufacturing businesses working individually or collaboratively to ensure Aerospace customers need only one point of contact; whether it is a single enquiry for a make to print precision machined component or a more complex engineered solution – the group maintains a focus on the key drivers of quality, cost, delivery and responsiveness.

Jason Aldridge, CWAF Chairman and Managing Director of Arrowsmith Engineering, said: “As a group, we are absolutely delighted to be backing Coventry’s bid to be UK City of Culture. We believe it would have an incredible impact on the city, the wider area and all of the businesses based here.

“The fact that we have helped Coventry City of Culture Trust reach 100 members of the 2021 Club makes it even more special for us as a group and we are proud to be contributing in this way. It’s fitting, in my view, that a group associated with manufacturing is the 100th member because of the city’s rich heritage in this sector.”
