AIP Aerospace, a world-leading provider of aircraft tooling systems and composite parts, welcomes Flow Aerospace Systems to its family.  Previously a part of Flow International, Flow Aerospace Systems is the world’s leading provider of equipment for machining large, composite aerostructures, using both waterjet technology and conventional routing.

Located in Jeffersonville, Indiana, Flow Aerospace designs and manufactures efficient and advanced turn-key composite machining solutions for the aerospace industry. These composite machining solutions include multi-process machine tools that waterjet cut, drill, route and inspect large composite aerostructures, primarily wing and fuselage skins, for customers such as Boeing, Airbus, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Bombardier, Embraer, and COMAC.

To lead Flow Aerospace into its new home with AIP Aerospace, Simon Kenworthy has been appointed Vice President and General Manager. With more than 23 years experience in the waterjet industry, 14 of which have been spent exclusively in aerospace applications, Simon brings with him expertise in engineering, operations, project management, and sales and marketing.

“Flow Aerospace will be an ideal fit within our existing customer base and aerostructure tooling business,” stated Brian Williams, CEO of AIP Aerospace. “We’re happy to welcome the leading industry experts at Flow Aerospace and expand our service offering.”
