The year 2015 started well for Sofitec and the ending will continue the same path. After announcing in January the signing of a 36 million euro contract with Spirit Aerosystems for the A350, civil referral program of the European manufacturer Airbus, Sofitec announced today the signing of a new contract for this program with the main supplier of aerostructures in the world.
Sofitec accumulates a technological investment of more than € 20 million so far this year, having moved to its new facilities in the Industrial Park of Carmona last July. In this line, the company has acquired a new large autoclave that will double its composites manufacturing capacity by the end of June 2016, with the aim of strengthening its international growth in the manufacturing of aerostructures.
Awarded by Spirit with the 2015 Supplier of the Year for Best New Program Support Award, with this new contract Sofitec consolidates its position as reference supplier for one of the largest in the world aeronautic scene. The Spanish company is manufacturing for the US Tier 1 structural composite parts belonging to section 15th of the A350-900 & 1000 fuselage.
A new step forward for Sofitec in its strategic international development plan. The company will attend AIRTEC, essential event for the International Aerospace Industry that this year celebrates its 10th anniversary with record participation figures.
