Cheltenham-headquartered aerospace training company Pennant is marking its 60th anniversary next month with chief executive Phil Walker saying the company is well placed for growth.
The company, which provides training and support products to aerospace, defence, rail and naval industries, will reach the milestone on 25 February. Pennant was founded by John Williams who developed animated displays using a patented light system, the forerunners of today’s software training systems. The company was floated on the London Stock Exchange in 1998.
Phil Walker, group chief executive, said: “I’m proud to be a part of a company with such a rich heritage and one which has very much moved with the times. “Any business is only as good as its people, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank employees past and present for their skills, support and dedication and for making Pennant what it is today, an internationally acknowledged leader in its chosen markets. “Looking to the future, I believe the business is well placed to deliver further growth and innovation, continuing to develop new products and services as we enter the next phase in Pennant’s long and distinguished history.”
