A Reputation Built On Our People

Their commitment, drive, and expertise are what keep us at the forefront of our industry. From both a business and an engineering perspective, their knowledge of materials, processes, and possibilities allows us to determine the most practical, effective, and commercially sound solutions for our customers.

Our know-how is shaped through experience, innovation, and time. It was we who created the canopy of that most iconic aircraft, World War II’s Supermarine Spitfire.

Highly-skilled engineers, expert designers, innovative thinkers, business-minded developers… the perfect mix of specialists for delivering innovative solutions.


Just like our restless spirit of enquiry, technology never stands still. COX is a company that has always focused on the technical developments within our industry.
