GENEO Software joins the Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA). After a chance meeting at the Manufacturing Expo 2022 with Rob Holmes, VP Aerospace at Hardide (and the chair, MAA Business Development Group), GENEO has now become a member of the Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA).
Attending the June 2022 BBQ
One networking BBQ later, we have already met some interesting folk and built a more robust network. Luckily for the GENEO attendees, it was a shorts and flip-flops affair as we moved into the summer heatwave.

We genuinely believe this will be a fruitful alliance of manufacturers in the aerospace industry. The major aerospace companies, Collins Aerospace, Meggitt, Moog Aircraft Group, and Rolls-Royce, are permanent board members, and their influence is distinct in the strategic direction of the MAA. But we don’t get the sense that the alliance is going through the motions and trying to win points with a broader audience. There is a genuine desire to support smaller companies by accessing funding and making the right connections for their business to grow and develop.
Looking Forward to the Working Groups
Another striking feature was the broader representation on the board. A total of 50 people from across the aerospace industry are actively involved. They are supporting three working groups, all of which help us with what we are trying to achieve as a company:
So we are now on our journey with the MAA and will be working closely with Rob Holmes, who heads up the Supply Chain Performance working group, to see how the MAA can help us with growth and where we can support the MAA.
