AERALIS MARKS OPENING OF NEW OFFICES IN BRISTOL, UK
AERALIS, the transformational British military jet developer, has marked a significant milestone in the development of its pioneering modular aircraft by opening its first site in Bristol.
Located in a heartland of British aerospace and defence manufacturing, the site was chosen due to its transport links, its strategic location within the company supply chain, and its proximity to numerous companies with whom AERALIS has already established relationships, such as the MOD, Atkins, and Rolls-Royce. The location will also allow AERALIS to leverage the wealth of engineering and design expertise available in the region.
AERALIS will operate the site as an ‘Enterprise Hub,’ comprising of a hybridised office and design engineering space where AERALIS can bring together partners to explore the initial stages of manufacturing and systems integration, as well as operate AERSIDE™, AERALIS’s integrated digital enterprise system. The office will initially house up to 40 staff with room for larger teams as the company continues its rapid growth.
The establishment of a permanent site will also allow AERALIS to engage with the local community and foster skills development in the region through STEM programmes and collaborative projects.
AERALIS’s founder & CEO Tristan Crawford, commented: “The opening of the Enterprise Hub marks a significant milestone in our development as a company, as it will allow us to accommodate our programme team together with our engineering team and our partners in the region to expand on the development of our innovative modular jet.”
