March 27, 2019
Poeton Industries were one of a number of UK companies invited to attend a supplier day at the US facility of global aerospace and defence leader, Collins Aerospace. Organised in partnership with the UK’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy; Department for International Trade; and Aerospace Technology Institute, Poeton were able to meet with Collins’ operations and supply chain executives to explore potential opportunities for future collaboration.
Collins Aerospace, who also have a significant presence in the UK with 5,000 employees across 30 sites, welcomed the opportunity to enhance relations between their US operations and UK suppliers. Paolo Dal Cin, vice president of Operations & Quality stated “we had a productive day of networking meetings and we look forward to continuing the conversation going forward.”
Kieran Hughes, Customer Account Manager, who represented Poeton commented:
“It was a very interesting day that was filled with lots of good conversations with not only key figures within Collins Aerospace, but other UK companies that are serious about growing their business within the aerospace sector. I’d like to thank the Department of International Trade (DIT) for putting on this event and getting us in front of some of the key decision makers within one of the largest industry leading companies.”
Baroness Rona Fairhead, UK Minister of State for Trade and Export Promotion, remarked “as a global leader in aerospace, the UK’s offer to the world in this sector is clear”, continuing that “trade missions are perfect opportunities for businesses to make connections with others across the supply chain. The Department for International Trade will continue to promote the sector to help UK businesses forge new trade ties, break into new markets and attract investment into this key sector.”
