Ideas Born To Fly™ at UTC Aerospace Systems

When the global aerospace community looks for ideas and solutions to its greatest challenges, they turn to UTC Aerospace Systems.

We help propel aerospace and defence forward in ways beyond imagination. We combine creativity and science to develop results that make air travel more intelligent and more electric.

With 90 product lines supporting 1,500 operators on 70,000 aircraft, we have 2.5 million components in the air. Every second, a flight takes off with our systems on board.


Our Stafford Road based Actuation Systems headquarters is a hotbed of innovation and transformation which will support key programme ramp up for air travel over the next few years. We’ve invested heavily in new state-of-the-art machinery to ensure we have the very best precision tooling for our engineers; we’ve also transformed production, key assembly and test lines.

We know our equipment is only as good as the people we employ and the teams they build. We’re proud of the engineering and manufacturing talent we continue to recruit and retain because nurturing and growing talent is the bedrock of our business. This year the Fordhouses facility welcomed a record number of Apprentices and Graduates, illustrating its commitment to ensuring a pipeline of the very best talent for the industry.

We understand that awards are integral to building reputation and recognising excellence. That’s why we’re proud to sponsor the Manufacturing Award for the fifth consecutive year.

“The West Midlands has a strong and proud manufacturing and engineering heritage and we are working hard to ensure the talent we attract and retain is developed so that future success is assured,” said Robert Hupfer, General Manager of Actuation Systems in Wolverhampton.

“It’s an honour to sponsor the Manufacturing Award again this year and support the rich and diverse manufacturing talent and innovation that keeps this industry alive.”
