The team has ambitious growth plans for the coming years and we have recognised that maintaining the approval will be instrumental in growing our reputation as a compliant, reliable and preferred supplier within the aerospace industry.
The team has been working hard to meet the high standards of the approval, which covers:
KATO® CoilThread® and the associated manufacturing functions at the Southwell site.
KATO® CoilThread® is the world’s leading wire thread insert that is manufactured from our Southwell site and exported globally. The aerospace industry has numerous applications for KATO® CoilThread® including seating, engine assembly and dashboard instrumentation. A passenger aircraft can contain in excess of 300,000 inserts. With KATO® CoilThread® Tangless®, installation and removal time is 40% quicker than using traditional tanged inserts that contain a tang that requires breaking off and accounting for.
