Posted 26 May 2017 · Add Comment

Precision subcontract manufacturing specialist Kenard Engineering Group has been selected for Sharing in Growth (SiG), the government-backed supply chain competitiveness programme, to help take advantage of aerospace growth opportunities.



As a privately-owned business the Kenard Group manufactures complex, critical components at its facilities in Dartford and Tewkesbury. The company has successfully developed over the past 50 years through continuous investment in skills, advanced technologies and improvement processes. Kenard has a long history of supplying aerospace, both civil and military applications, with a proven track record of supporting customers through the development and prototype stages, into full production. The Sharing in Growth (SiG) programme was a natural next step for Kenard, which is primed to move to the next level.

Engaging with SiG through an intense diagnostic phase helped the management team to develop a vision and strategy for the future. As a result Kenard has set itself ambitious growth targets, as well as cultural, process and digital transformation goals, that will benefit from the specialist coaching and training that SiG will provide across all areas of the business. The initial focus of the four year programme will be to drive operational excellence, business development, people development and management control and reporting.

Said Kenard Group managing director Keith Ellis: “With a strong heritage and wealth of experience to draw upon, we anticipate that the SiG programme will build on the many core strengths of the business and already high levels of professionalism and capability within our team. We see this as a fantastic opportunity to invest in our ability to deliver globally cost competitive performance, with thought leadership on the latest best practice and applications in manufacturing at its core. We expect SiG to help unlock the full potential of our business, to the benefit of all our stakeholders and industry.”
