Some 40 of the 400 companies belonging to Farnborough Aerospace Consortium (FAC), a trade association providing support to 1,200 aerospace- and defense-related companies in southern England, are enjoying “exhibition and marketing opportunities” here at Le Bourget. The organization “acts as a catalyst for business between large primes and the supply chain, particularly small- to medium-size enterprises.”
FAC is launching a “capability database,” which it suggests could become a marketing tool for the UK industry. On Thursday, it will announce a partnership
with the UK General Tool Makers Association.
