The Farnborough International Airshow is a week-long event held at the Farnborough Airport in Hampshire, England. The airshow provides an opportunity to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers and investors. The show is also used for the announcement of new developments and orders, and to attract media coverage.
The four companies joining the South Carolina delegation are TIGHITCO, UEC Electronics, Phoenix Specialty and Roy Metal Finishing. TIGHITCO, UEC and Phoenix are well established aerospace suppliers. Roy Metal Finishing is seeking to enter the aerospace market and supply metal finishing services. The companies will each have a kiosk within the South Carolina booth. Their mission is to make contact with current and future customers to increase business and exports.
The four companies represent different regions of the state with TIGHITCO and UEC from the Charleston region, Phoenix Specialty in Bamburg and Roy Metal Finishing in Greenville.
SC Aerospace staff worked closely with the South Carolina Department of Commerce to promote this unique opportunity and with the companies as they prepare for the mission. SC Aerospace staff will attend the Airshow and be there to support the companies and to promote the growing aerospace industry cluster in South Carolina.
