Large UK Commercial Aerospace Presence At Paris Demonstrates Buoyant Industry

Over 90 companies of the 129 British participants to exhibit on UK Pavilion

A|D|S will host the UK Pavilion in its traditional spot Hall 2B for the 49th International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget.

Reflecting the positive mood in the industry as demonstrated at last year's Farnborough Airshow, UK Pavilion space sold out in early 2011. Further space was created to account for the high demand, resulting in one of the strongest showings from UK exhibitors in recent years at the Paris Airshow.

Rees Ward, CEO of A|D|S, said:

"Last year's Farnborough Airshow ended on a high note with over $47bn worth of orders announced, and this buoyancy in the commercial aerospace market would appear to be reflected in the very strong turn out from the UK Exhibitors. Of course there are the household UK names present, but we are also witnessing an encouraging amount of interest from the UK SME community eager to engage in the international marketplace, with a range of companies such as Cooper Antennas or Amfin making their presence known."
