KG Washford welcomes new Planned Maintenance Manager

Test Rig specialist expands the team in period of rapid growth.


Following a period of rapid growth and a series of substantial new orders, West Midlands-based precision engineering firm KG Washford is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Smith as Planned Maintenance Manager.

As well as supplying high quality, precision machined components for the aerospace, automotive and general engineering industries, KG Washford (KGW) is a UK leader in the design and manufacture of hydro-mechanical test rigs. Each rig is custom designed and engineered to simulate the fuel flow systems in engines of civil and military aircraft. By testing fuel system components such as fuel meters, high pressure pumps and solenoid valves under extreme flight conditions, the rigs ensure that these components can be relied upon to maintain full functionality and operate safely in whatever circumstances the aircraft encounters.

With 20 years’ experience in the automotive industry, working largely in the facilities management arena, Paul arrives at KGW with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the implementation of engineering systems. Paul’s main responsibilities within this newly created role will lie in KGW’s Asset Integrity Management programme.
