The Isle of Man Aerospace Cluster (IOMAC) has announced its three-year Cluster Strategy, outlining a number of key objectives that it aims to achieve by 2020.
The new strategy focuses on promoting and developing Isle of Man aerospace companies in order to achieve global recognition for performance, competence, infrastructure and environment.
IOMAC offers a range of services to help enable cluster members to continuously improve their businesses to meet world-class standards, as well as to set a minimum standard for the cluster.
Adrian Moore, Cluster Chairman and Manager, commented: “I have been working within the precision engineering and aerospace sector for over 30 years and have seen the sector develop substantially on the Island.
“Over the last 10 years the IOMAC has increased by 30% and now has over 885 full-time member employees on the Isle of Man. Since it was founded in 2006, IOMAC members have also notched up 21 industry winner or finalist awards.”
Moore added: “Working closely with the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA) has proven to be very beneficial to the IOMAC and we are now recognised as an important cog in the North West and UK supply chain. I look forward to leading the IOMAC to implement this renewed strategy’s objectives over the coming years.”
