Sofitec becomes the sole supplier of straps for the A350

Stelia Aerospace, one of the most important global Tier 1, has awarded a contract to Sofitec for the manufacture of the front fuselage straps package of the Airbus A350.

Thanks to it, Sofitec becomes the sole supplier worldwide of straps for the A350, by joining the pre-existing contracts with Spirit AeroSystems and Premium Aerotec for the manufacturing of these components.

The agreement signed with Stelia includes the production of these pieces from now to approximately seven years. The first delivery is scheduled for July 2018, and in September we hope to reach full rate.

With a turnover of 2.2 billioneuros in 2017 and more than 6,900 employees worldwide, STELIA Aerospace supports the major aeronautical players, such as Airbus, ATR, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer or Dassault, among others.

This new award will strengthen our position in the aeronautical industry, and will also contribute to maintaining our growth commitment and our international positioning.
