Our most recent expansion in late 2016 saw us move into the new factory at Edenbridge, enabling the introduction of more product lines and continued growth of cable harnessing for a variety of markets.

Our customer services team based primarily in Edenbridge UK, but with representation in our USA facilities, continue to serve our worldwide customer base by working closely with our network of distributors, agents and field sales managers.

All manufacturing staff are multi-function trained to highest skill levels, and work within a very clean and structured environment.

All in-process cleaning, part marking, wire crimping and adhesion etching is carried out and controlled, in accordance with relevant mil or aerospace standard procedures.

Automation is used extensively to ensure repeatability and highest quality are maintained throughout the manufacturing process.

AirBorn cable assemblies are manufactured to customer requirements in our AS9100D approved facility.

We can build to customer specification and drawing (build to print), or can work with clients to ensure design to manufacture (D2M), which is often overlooked by companies, but which is an integral part of our work process, to take an existing design and make modifications and improvements that benefit both the customer and our own manufacturing team.

Part of that process is to consider testing and assembly jigging (2D or 3D) to ensure the product right fist time, incorporating strain relief or custom backshelling to ruggedise the cable looms.

Our ability to build cable assemblies mixing both AirBorn and non AirBorn content enables us to give our customers unparalled solution versatility. Everything from a simple piece of crimped wire to a complete system box build can be completed in the same plant.

Our many years of Cable Assembly experience is not limited to using just our own manufactured connectors, industry standard Mil-Spec circulars (including D38999 and M5015 series) feature heavily in many of our assemblies.

Larger assemblies in particular benefit from our ability to concentrically or helically lay the wiring to increase flexibility, especially where frequent movement is demanded (ie test equipment)

We are happy to work with low volume short term prototype numbers, and longer term full scale production quantities.
