Astute has enjoyed a very direct relationship with aerospace & defence since our inception in 1989; our founder’s background was distribution with defence companies such as Plessey, Marconi and British Aerospace. Nothing has changed in the strength of our relationships, only the names of the companies and the type of services we now offer, which are far greater and wider in scope. Going back a decade, we were supporting customers in the latter stages of an equipment’s life cycle: obsolescence or a lack of supply in the market was the driver.
Today, with equipment staying in service longer than ever, our customers now rely on us for support and involvement at the start of a product’s life, as designing the right material in equipment during the concept phase is critical to the through-life support of it. This has seen a real shift in our offering. With 40+ franchised lines across connectors, power, semiconductors and E-Mech, we now offer a full Design>Fulfilment>Support service.
