Fine Tubes Ltd at the 2018 Farnborough International Airshow

Farnborough air show is no pipe dream for Plymouth tube firm

The 2018 Farnborough International Airshow is the most important aviation trade show of the year - and this year was no exception. With the attendance and representation of many aerospace and advance engineering companies from the Plymouth and surrounding area, this firmly put Devon to the forefront of aviation technology. Attending the four-day event

was precision tube manufacturer Fine Tubes Ltd, based in Plymouth, who showcased their high performance aerospace products to

exhibitors and attendees throughout the event. It also gave them the opportunity to network with other areas of the aerospace community including manufacturers, airlines, financiers, military and governments. Mike Cullum, International Sales Manager – EMEA for Plymouth- based Fine Tubes, commented: “Aerospace is a key market for our precision tubing products which are used for some of the most critical engine and airframe applications where failure is not an option. For us, the Farnborough

International Airshow was an ideal platform for showcasing our capabilities across a wide range of advanced metals and lightweight alloys. “Farnborough exceeded our

expectations, enabling us to hold a series of meetings with current and potential new customers.” The Farnborough Airshow has a

world class reputation with more than 1500 exhibitors and 100,000 sgm of exhibition space, featuring static aircraft and flying displays. It also boasts of up to 100,000 visitors over the four days.
