It enables its members to become more competitive and increase their market share through facilitating local and international trading, technology transfer and development, sharing of best practice and training plus lobbying at national level on key issues facing the sector. The FAC enjoys widespread recognition by the government and the industry as the principal voice of SMEs in the aerospace and defence industries in the UK.

At Southern Manufacturing 2019, visitors will be able to find out more about the FAC and the vital work it does in support of the UK’s aerospace and defence industry.
