FlyZermatt paragliding wing in Zermatt, Switzerland

 

The FlyZermatt team can regularly be spotted flying clients across the breathtaking skies around the world famous Matterhorn. As a symbol of our contribution to advanced composite materials market, Whiteley’s is proud to sponsor a FlyZermatt paragliding wing.

 

The lines used on the gliders are capable of holding up to 220kg even while pulling several G in acrobatic turns; these are made from Aramid and Dynema, both advanced composites. Whiteley’s has consistently matched innovation in the materials market with innovation in its cutting requirements, by being the first scissor manufacturers to design a range of shears for servicing industries which use these highly advanced materials.

 

These can be found in Formula One, all other motorsports, ballistic protection including body armour and helmets, aerospace and numerous defence applications including jet fighters. Our world-class shears continue to be at the forefront of the advanced composite materials market.

The Ministry of Defense

 

Whiteley’s has an extensive history of providing unique cutting services to industry. Since being founded in 1760 at the forefront of the industrial revolution, we have continued to manufacture the highest quality scissors and shears for a huge range of unique clients.

 

One particularly specialized industry we have worked with for many years is the Ministry of Defense. As far back as World War Two, Whiteley’s were the first British manufacturers of pinking shears that were sourced directly for the national war effort.

 

All our stock was supplied straight to the Royal Air Force, where our shears were utilized in the vital production of planes, air balloons and parachutes. This was the first time paratroopers were first used on a large scale, and had a significant impact in the outcome of the war.

 

We continue to supply the Ministry of Defense today with our advanced composite shears, which are used to make items such as bullet proof vests.
