About ADS

ADS represents and supports more than 1100 UK businesses operating in the aerospace, defence, security and space sectors, including many in the aircraft interiors sector.

Whether representing industry, connecting our members with business opportunities or driving forward innovation and growth, ADS is at the forefront of an array of activities, events and programmes that benefit our members. Our membership ranges from major multinational businesses with substantial UK presences, to hundreds of small and medium sized companies in every part of the country.

We have a number of Special Interest Groups – including the Aircraft Interiors Special Interest Group – formed of members and stakeholders with similar professional specialities. Led by members and supported by ADS’s Executive they enable a strong and proactive network for members to seek out business development opportunities, influence markets and keep up to date with current, related developments.

We are an organisation that aims to deliver to the highest standards, and as such we have successfully been accredited for the ISO9001:2015 Standard and Cyber Essentials Plus.

Farnborough International Limited (FIL), which runs the Farnborough International Airshow, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ADS Group Ltd.
