    He will be tasked with leading the development of the business “to meet existing and new market demands”.

    Bennett has 30 years of experience in the manufacturing industry, serving markets such as consumer electronics, defence, medical, automotive and military & commercial aerospace. He joined STG Aerospace in June 2017.

    “I am excited by the new challenge this brings, humbled to be offered this most significant role by our shareholders and grateful for the exceptional team around me that has taught me so much and supported my STG journey so far,” Bennett said.

    “2020 has been a year of more change at STG, some planned for, but much of it out of necessity as we wrestled to respond quickly whilst the world began to buckle under the pandemic. I am absolutely certain that our simple approach of ‘keep all our people safe and maintain business continuity’ and then doing everything we could to ensure those two things, meant we were able to keep both our UK & US sites operational throughout the year and achieve on time supply to all our customers.

    “Through it all STG Aerospace has remained a stable and secure organisation. A business that will remain industry leaders and trusted partners to all our customers and suppliers for many, many years to come.”
