The ASCE 2 Programme builds on the successful foundations created by the £8m Aerospace Supply Chain Excellence (ASCE) 1 programme, with both programmes strongly supported by the Northwest Primes.

The objective of the ASCE2 Programme is to secure a competitive base of world-class aerospace supply chain companies in the North West of England.

The Northwest Aerospace Alliance will focus on assisting a minimum of 45 Aerospace Companies to work as a collective; forging close coupled links between industry, academia and associated support organisations through the continued development of the “Super Cluster” concept.

The ASCE 2 programme focuses on delivering 5 key work streams, notably Commodity Groups, Skills and Image, Innovation, Shared Services and Extended Enterprise, each encouraging collaborative behaviour and close coupled thinking.

During the programme period, ASCE 2 helped to increase GVA by £125m, created 165 new jobs and safeguarded a further 404, whilst assisting over 40 key aerospace supply chain companies.

Some of the best practise developed through the ASCE 2 programme is captured in a series of videos which portray the activities developed to improve aerospace supply chain company performance.
