Kigass Aero Components Ltd

Our company has been owned and run by 4 generations of the Wardman family. Initially incorporated in 1924, Charlie Wardman began Key Brass by developing starter motors for diesel engine cars. Through the Second World War Kigass, as it had become, manufactured the primer pump for Spitfire aircraft.  The company parts can still be found in working Spitfire aircraft.  After the war Rex Wardman ran the business until the mid-70’s when Arthur Wardman expanded the company through strategic acquisitions to a point where Kigass employed over 1200 people in Leamington and Warwick working in the automotive and aerospace industries.  In the late 90’s much of the business was sold but the core aerospace and auto sport business remains and thrives from our offices in Warwick. Kigass Aero Components is active in many engineering sectors including industry and power. We manufacture and supply parts for ground based gas turbine engines, energy installations and oil and gas pumping stations throughout the world. For over 90 years Kigass has manufactured parts for the aerospace sector. From the Spitfire in WW2 to the A380 Airbus and Tornado of today.
