Innovative tooling and automation outcomes for aerospace

For over 30 years, Marand has been a trusted supplier of high-quality, innovative tooling for commercial and defence industries around the world. As Australia's leading aerospace tooling supplier we have designed, manufactured and exported over 1,800 tools globally, all upholding an AS9100 quality standard.
Our expertise in design, fabrication, machining and installation of high tolerance, complex tools is underpinned by a detailed understanding of end-to-end processes. This enables us to deliver innovative, cost saving solutions for our clients.
Marand's involvement with the high level JSF/F-35 defence program is a testament to our capability. Under contract to Lockheed Martin, we have designed layup and trim tooling for the conventional seals and edges on three variations of the F-35 program and delivered them directly to suppliers in the US, Canada, Netherlands, Denmark and Norway.
