The visitors met employees of AACE, who explained how the company provides technical expertise, advice and training to aerospace and defence customers in the UK and particularly to the Ministry of Defence (MoD). 

AACE’s location in Bristol is crucial in this respect, as the MD of AACE, Nolan Collins-Bent, explained:  “We moved here because it is the centre of gravity for the aerospace and defence industry and we have since expanded. It was great to host the Defence Secretary’s visit today to showcase our work as we are keen to continue to work with the MOD as well as the local aerospace and defence industry.”

As one of many small and medium enterprises in the Bristol area which provide valuable support into the MOD, the team at AACE was very pleased to explain how their team of subject matter experts assists in providing efficient and effective support to our armed Services.

AACE is a technical solutions provider, with a strong heritage in aviation, specialising in airworthiness, system safety engineering, logistics and operational support assurance.
