Borne out of our work with motorsport companies such as Prodrive and MIRA, we have carved a niche in the supply of specialist military vehicle parts where Aish Technologies’ combination of state-of-the-art fabrication facility and responsive programme management style can add value to our customers’ products. This combination has been so successful in providing quick turn-round parts that a number of bidders for UK military vehicle programmes have employed Aish to manufacture, modify and remanufacture prototype vehicle parts as they have honed their offerings in time for ‘Trials of Truth’ competitions.
Our work in military vehicle components is not limited to prototypes however. We have proved cost effective in the delivery of production builds, for instance on the British Army’s new Foxhound and Rummage patrol vehicles, and continue to be a key supplier to the military vehicle industry for components such as:
• Bar armour
• Chassis (including mine-protected)
• Fuel tanks
• General fabricated assemblies
• Machined components
• Weapon mounts
• Wiring looms
The Aish Technologies factory in Poole, which is cleared for access and storage of classified material, has been continuously improved with new machine tools and facilities over the past few years to maintain Aish’s position as a world-class advanced manufacturing company. Welders hold the relevant approvals for mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium and armour plate; CNC laser cutters and benders can handle up to 25mm thickness, and new 3-axis CNC machining centres can produce complex machined components. Because of our long history in the supply of military materiel, we are conversant with the quality expectations of our customers, reducing our customers’ subcontract management overhead and removing programme risk. In addition, the same production engineering team that interpret our own product designs for cost-effective manufacture is available to productise and value-engineer our customers’ designs where required.
Companies who have taken advantage of Aish Technologies’ superb facilities for their vehicle component requirements include Force Protection, Lockheed Martin, Ricardo and Thales UK. Please contact us to find out more.
