Shimco, a leader in manufacturing precision parts, laminated and edge bonded shims, tapers and spacers, announced today their participation at the 49th Farnborough International Airshow to be held at the Aerodrome in Farnborough, UK from July 14-20, 2014. The Ontario Aerospace Council and the Government of Ontario, Canada are working together to present the Ontario aerospace industry to the world at Farnborough in the Ontario Pavilion Hall 4/C17-C19 and in Chalet B30.
The Farnborough International Airshow prides itself on facilitating first-class business opportunities for the global aerospace industry. As one of the world’s largest exhibitions and air displays, the show provides a wealth of dedicated and focused business platforms.
Ontario’s aerospace industry is diversified and technology-intensive. Over 200 Ontario companies whose primary activity is aerospace contribute to annual sales of ~$5.3 billion per year, with nearly 80 percent of it generated by exports. Today, more than 125 aerospace programs around the world – including the Airbus A380, Boeing 787 and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter – incorporate made-in-Ontario components.
Peter Voss, President of Shimco, commented: “This is our fourth consecutive international Airshow in the Ontario Pavilion, and it has proved an ideal platform to engage with international aerospace companies, as the show draws visitors from around the world. Shimco’s international presence continues to grow, and we are close to signing an international distributor to further extend our supply chain at a global level. The Ontario Pavilion provides a centralized location at the event that showcases the expertise of Ontario companies in the aerospace industry. We are proud to be one of the exhibitors in this prestigous stand to present our extensive range of custom manufactured products of solid, laminated, edge bonded and tapered shims, laminated sheets and precision machined parts.”
