- Airtificial signs a new contract, for three million euros, with Textron, an American giant with more than 150 years and operating in 20 countries, to manufacture structures for specialized vehicles.
- The assembly line for the manufacture of the structures will be installed in the new Airtificial plant in Getafe (Madrid) whose objective is to be able to attend to the growing demand for the manufacture of structures for vehicles, among them those of Textron
Madrid, January 15, 2020. Airtificial reinforces its relationship with another mobility giant, which joins its client portfolio. Textron, a quoted American multi-industrial company, valued at 14,000 million dollars, with companies such as Bell, Cessna, Beechcraft, E-Z-GO, Arctic Cat, among others, and a team of 35,000 people around the world, once again relies on Airtificial for the manufacture of its specialized vehicles. Airtificial, the only listed Spanish company in artificial intelligence, has just signed its second contract, for a total of approximately three million euros spread over the next three years, with Textron for the mass production of structures for specialized vehicles. The Company repeats with Textron and reinforces its position as a Tier 2 and reference supplier, after signing a contract a year ago for the manufacture, production and assembly of parts for specialized vehicles.
Textron is one of the world’s best-known multi-sector companies, recognized for its global network of aircraft, defence, industrial and financial businesses to provide customers with innovative products and services. Textron was founded in 1923 in New England and now operates in 25 countries.
Throughout its history, Textron has been a source of innovative technologies. From its laboratories, important advances have been developed in the evolution of airplanes, rotors, armored vehicles, electric vehicles and automotive systems.
Textron trusts again in Airtificial. The experience in production engineering and electrical equipment that the Spanish company has allows to offer Textron, a high-quality product in which multiple technologies are integrated. The structures will be designed by Airtificial’s engineers and manufactured in one of its plants, which meet the highest industrial requirements of the aerospace sector.
Premiere at the new plant in Getafe
The new series production line will be installed at Airtificial’s new plant in Getafe where other production lines have already been installed with the aim of responding to the growing demand for vehicles of all types and, specifically, for this new market niche in which it has already been working for several years.
Javier Moreno General Manager of Aerospace & Defense & Mobility, highlights: “Airtificial has the technological-industrial capacity to serve Textron wherever it is needed, we proved it a year ago when we were hired to manufacture parts. Our own know-how and technology facilitates this new diversification of our activity which, in turn, amplifies our capacity for growth of the Company”.
This contract allows Textron to increase its capacity and in turn improve the automation of electrical testing thanks to Airtificial’s experience in the field of testing systems, which translates directly into time and cost savings per unit and improved product quality.
Textron has a global network of activity with aircraft, defence sector, various industrial and other financial companies, with which it offers its customers innovative products and services
