Description

This book records the life of an aviation enterprise which after 80 years of success and failure in various directions has a fine reputation for the manufacture of advanced aerospace components and control systems. Through many vicissitudes and several changes of name and ownership shines the vision and the determination of its successive leaders backed by a superlative workforce. And the secret of ultimate achievement may lie in Uffa Fox's tribute to the founder, Sam Saunders, as « an exceptional man who collected the best craftsmen from all over Britain, spendid men who took great pride in all they did and inspired us apprentices with the will to do well ».
