The Waterjet Group, which was established in 2002, is a leading UK waterjet cutting company for the aerospace industry. The company has several waterjets and related value-add equipment, a large number of aerospace approvals and also serves other high-tech industries including the medical technology sector.
The Waterjet Group operates out of a site near Leeds. With its equipment, the company is able to process a wide range of materials and sizes for the European and international customer base.
ThyssenKrupp Aerospace has been working with The Waterjet Group for many years and will be integrating its employees, equipment and technical expertise into the ThyssenKrupp Aerospace global network.
“We expect the combination of The Waterjet Group’s and ThyssenKrupp Aerospace’s expertise to deliver further productivity improvements and growth opportunities,” said John Ferguson, Managing Director of ThyssenKrupp Aerospace UK. “The special focus on improving near net shape cutting, thus improving the metal-utilization, will continue to be part of our strategic goal.”
