Today, the majority of commercial aerospace programmes feature Mettis forgings and it’s forging expertise is recognised around the world. Mettis is a valuable supplier to industry giants such as Rolls Royce, Airbus & Boeing. In April 1999 the business was awarded The Queens Award for Export Achievement.
To mark their 75th anniversary, Mettis Aersopace held an open day at their site in Redditch and RUMM were delighted to be one of the main sponsors for this event.
RUMM recently signed a long term Energy Management contract with Mettis Aerospace which included extensive sub metering of gas, electricity, compressed air, water & effluent across the site. The automatic Monitoring & Targeting system using RUMM’s proprietary technologies (PULSE & IBASS) with advanced data analysis was deployed to identify areas for savings. RUMM’s Energy Management Services (EMS) was also embedded into the business to drive out the savings for Mettis.
Phil Taylor, CFO commented “ The forging process consumes a significant amount of power and to reduce both our costs and carbon foot print we engaged RUMM as energy management consultants. We were delighted that RUMM were one of the major sponsors of our 75th anniversary celebrations”
Jamie Watkins, RUMM’s Sales Director commented “It was a pleasure to support such a big event in their history. It could clearly be seen onsite on the day that there was a huge amount of pride & passion from such a long standing employer to the area and what a fantastic turn out too. We look forward to continuing to partner with Mettis to deliver long term sustainable savings”
