Lee Company invests to stay ahead of demand

12 July 2015

Predicted demand from the major aircraft manufacturers raises important questions about how component manufacturers are planning and investing to keep up with demand.

Recent reports have focused on the challenges facing tier 1 and 2 European Aerospace OEM suppliers, highlighting the need for them to design, develop and manufacture more complex parts and systems to shorter lead times and at more competitive cost.

One company responding to these challenges and future demands is the Lee Company in the USA, parent company of Lee Products in the UK, whose major customers include Boeing and Airbus.

The company's new Screens Group manufacturing facility in Westbrook, CT, USA (pictured) is a good example of responding to demand by investing in increased manufacturing capacity.  This new facility was opened in June 2015 replacing an existing screens manufacturing building and represents a major investment. 

As part of this continued investment, new machine tools will be acquired to keep pace with increased demand as well as expanding the range of photo-etched screens and Hi-Bar Safety Screens which are machined from solid materials.
