Wallwork Heat Treatment Manchester has added to its approval portfolio new accreditations from helicopter manufacturer Augusta Westland and Goodrich Actuation Systems, a supplier of systems and components to all branches of aviation. The new endorsements sit alongside existing approvals from Airbus, APPH, BAe, Bombardier, NADCAP and Rolls Royce.

All aspects of the Wallwork service were audited to ensure compliance with the highest standards of product preparation, treatment and quality assurance.
