Troy – Supporting businesses in the Aerospace & Defence sector


The Aerospace and Defence industry is a growing and dynamic sector. Businesses within the sector are at the forefront of technological advancement, and must rely on the ability to stay ahead of the curve among competitors.

The sector is set to rapidly accelerate over the coming years with a strong focus on areas such as Supply Chain, Digital Transformation, and Decarbonisation.

Supply Chain disruptions may be one of the biggest challenges to face the sector in 2023. The Covid-19 pandemic, and most recently the Russian invasion on Ukraine playing into this. Over the coming year, it’s expected there will be a shift from global to regional sourcing.

To ensure long-term growth and to mitigate risk, it’s vital that businesses in the sector work to build resilient supply chains.

Here at Troy, we can support your business in identifying new suppliers from our network of over 450 world class original equipment manufacturers.

Our commitment to sustainability and decarbonisation

In a first for the engineering sector, last year Troy carried out an exercise to produce carbon emissions figures for each of over 400,000 products sold through our network. In order for businesses to do something about their carbon footprint, you first need to be able to measure your carbon emissions – and we can help. 

Our reporting used the UK government’s methodology for estimating emissions, the data we hold on the products we sell and capabilities from within our data analytics team, which has longstanding relationships with data and climate experts at the University of Exeter.

This now enables us to provide clients with Scope 3 carbon emissions reports, detailing the carbon footprint of everything they buy through us. We are the first company in the industry to be able to provide carbon emissions for every product we sell, it’s something we’re extremely proud of.
