About Us

GKN Aerospace engineers at East Cowes are working on a broad portfolio of technology development projects, progressing innovations in composite manufacturing. In advanced composites, GKN Aerospace has an impressive track record – taking focused R&D and applying this to creating effective solutions, for example, the first all-composite wing spars for a large aircraft was developed by GKN Aerospace for the A400M. Our process developments are moving us away from traditional hand-lay processes into the important area of new automated techniques, for example automated fibre placement and robotics, which are increasingly being used to create complex, integrated structures such as winglets.
