A Bangor company famous for its hairbrushes has signed a multi-million dollar deal to supply parts for a US aircraft company.

Denroy Plastics, a sister company to hair product maker Denman International, has secured the contract with Texas-based Triumph Aerostructures-Vought Aircraft Division.

It will make plastic components for use on aerostructures manufactured for final use on Bombardier business jets.

The deal will last for five years and was announced at the Farnborough Airshow where managing director John Rainey hinted that further deals were on the cards.

“We are delighted to have secured this significant five year contract with Triumph Aerostructures-Vought Aircraft Division, and look forward to working closely with them. This contract and others in the pipeline further cement the level of momentum and innovation which are becoming the norm at Denroy. We would like to thank the Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster for her continued support, and will be making further significant announcements in the coming months.”

The minister praised the deal.

“Denroy Plastics is operating at the forefront of ground-breaking technology opportunities for the aerospace industry and this contract is a tremendous result for this enterprising and progressive firm.

“The company has built up unrivalled knowledge in plastic moulding in its 40 year history and is regarded as a world leader in its field.”
