Composite Structures Capabilities

Brookhouse Aerospace manufacturing and test facilities specialising in total aerostructures solutions, from composite and metal detail parts and subassemblies to fully integrated assemblies, associated with tooling, repair, and overhaul expertise for the domestic and international aerospace markets.
We provide a highly effective, integrated platform capable of delivering high technology solutions within the composite aerospace industry. This includes Project Management, Design, Engineering, Manufacture, Inspection, Test and Reporting associated with the manufacture and material characterization of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites, test specimens and associated test articles.
Brookhouse Aerospace also provides full service engineering from conceptual design and analysis to prototyping, tooling and testing. Our capabilities include conceptual design and analysis, process engineering, tool design, material and component testing, prototyping and data storage.

Brookhouse Aerospace is organized around LEAN Manufacturing Teams and Production Cells. Brookhouse Aerospace has the capability to produce a range of composite structures, producing monolithic and sandwich parts from a range of materials including carbon fiber composite, glass and Aramid cured by autoclave. We specialize in military and civil applications with a considerable range of products including flight controls such as aileron assemblies, and winglets.
