BRIERLEY HILL, UK -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Mar 28, 2011 -- Hampson Aerospace Tooling Solutions ("Hampson"), a division of Hampson Industries PLC, a UK-listed international aerospace group, announced it will be highlighting its large structure composite and metal tooling capabilities at the upcoming JEC Composites Show in Paris, at stand S5.

"Hampson is the world's largest independent aerospace tooling manufacturer, and the only one capable of providing an in-house end-to-end solution for large structure composite and metal tooling," commented Paul Walsh, Hampson Aerospace Tooling Solutions Chief Executive Officer. "We have a proven track record as a reliable design, development and build partner for challenging tooling applications around the world and have recently enhanced our capability to make tools using carbon fiber / BMI resin materials. We look forward to presenting our capabilities to visitors at this year's JEC show."

Hampson Aerospace Tooling Solutions -- through its American subsidiaries Coast Composites, Odyssey and Global Tooling Systems -- has the largest, most versatile, and fastest turn-key tooling manufacturing capabilities in the world with the largest number of long bed 5 axis machines dedicated to aerospace tooling. This leading manufacturing capability is supported by complete vertical integration, helping ensure the highest levels of schedule and quality performance.

The company's core capability is in the manufacture of tooling systems used to fabricate the flight-critical composite and metal structures used in the latest generation of aircraft. These systems include large fiber-placement moulds, lay-up moulds, resin transfer moulds, and all types of assembly jigs and fixtures. The addition of BMI composite tools allows us to select the best material system for the application. Hampson Tooling Solutions is uniquely qualified to meet the demands of today's airframers that require the use of both Invar and Composite tools.

Tools designed and manufactured by Hampson have, and continue to play, a critical role in the design, pre-production, and production phases of many of the most important programs in aerospace including the A350, A380, A400M, B787, B777, CH53, F-35, HondaJet, V-22, PiperJet and many more. Hampson now works with virtually every major airframe manufacturer in the world.
