Electric Wiring Interconnection Systems

GKN Aerospace’s wiring business is recognised as a market and technology leader in electrical wiring interconnection systems (EWIS) for commercial and military aircraft and aircraft engines.



As EWIS systems are affected by almost any configuration change of the aircraft, the efficient management of complex and frequent design changes into production is core to the business.

The proprietary wiring design and manufacturing system (WDMS) toolset integrates all aspects of wiring system management, including perfect configuration management and continuous monitoring into one powerful online system. With WDMS, we offer our customers a single process across multiple sites, resulting in a consistent quality product that supports all the customers’ needs over the entire life cycle of their programmes. The proven system is recognised worldwide as best practice in the industry.

GKN Aerospace is responsible for the design and production of the entire Electrical Wiring Interconnection System of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II and of the Airbus A220.

The international production in strategic regions including Turkey, China, India, the Netherlands, Canada and the USA enhances affordability, and supports customers with local content, offset and industrial participation.
