SWS an EASA Part 21J DOA, is pleased to announce the further expansion of its Static Test facility in South Wales.

Since its opening in 2012, the static test rig has been approved by both Boeing and Airbus airframe manufacturers as well as some of the world's leading manufacturers of aircraft cabin interior products.

The test facility which boasts to be one of the newest in Europe now enjoys the regular custom of some of the industry's leading players such as B/E Aerospace, Acro Aircraft Seating Ltd, AIM Aviation and Zodiac Aerospace. In the last year, the rig has also successfully supported a number of galley programmes.

Here are just a few things our clients say about using SWS:-
