The UK ground support equipment (GSE) manufacturer, which is based in Redditch in the West Midlands, saw productivity from its in-house team of fabricators and technicians exceed the best pre-pandemic years due to strong demand.

To construct Newbow’s signature wheel and brake change trailers and nitrogen/oxygen service carts, Newbow used more than 41 tonnes of steel and calibrated more than 2,000 aircraft tyre pressure gauges.

The order book in Q1 of 2024 is strong and the approved supplier status to Boeing will strengthen Newbow’s reputation in the GSE and tyre pressure gauge markets, Newbow says.

Marc Green, Sales Director at Newbow Aerospace, said: “The past twelve months for Newbow Aerospace has reflected the continued post-pandemic recovery in commercial aviation, supported by the forecast from IATA, suggesting that some 4.7 billion people are expected to fly this year, which exceeds the pre-pandemic level of 4.5 billion in 2019. Coupled with discussions we’ve had with our customers both existing and prospective, we face 2024 with cautious optimism that this upward trend will continue.”
