Dowty Opens Production Facility in Brockworth, UK

Dowty Propellers has inaugurated a new facility in Brockworth, UK, to develop, manufacture and support its state-of-the-art propeller systems with all-composite blades. The 183,000-sq.-ft. building brings together Dowty’s primary resources at one site: from the full production process for its propeller systems to the company’s administrative offices, design and engineering teams, as well as the Dowty Propellers repair and overhaul (DPRO) center – the UK arm of Dowty Propellers’ global support network. The Brockworth facility replaces Dowty’s original headquarters and blade manufacturing facility in Gloucester that was destroyed by fire in February 2015.
