19-6-2013 — /europawire.eu/ — ThyssenKrupp Aerospace continues to expand its business. In Tunisia, the German technology group ThyssenKrupp’s aerospace materials and services provider recently opened its first facility on the African continent.
The newly constructed site at Aerospace Park Mghira commenced business in April. This includes cutting block drafts from aircraft grade aluminum plates, the exclusive distribution of metal plate and sheet as well as aluminum profiles. Referring to the particular “first” of a site on African soil, ThyssenKrupp Aerospace President Jürgen Funke said: “We’re in the business of supporting our customers as best possible. When that means going where the customers go or already are, then that’s what we do. So in this case it was only a matter of time until we would join our regional customers here.”
With an expected full number of 12 employees, the facility will supply sheet metal, plate metal and aluminum profile to the regional aerospace industry, specifically to customers Aérolia Tunesia, Figeac Aero and Mecahers.
ThyssenKrupp Aerospace supplies material and supply chain management services to the world’s leading aerospace companies and their supply chains. The multinational company operates from numerous locations throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and North Africa. Located in all global regions of aerospace manufacturing, the 1,600 employees aggregate demand across a single supply chain on behalf of the world’s leading Original Equipment Manufacturers. At the same time, the ThyssenKrupp Aerospace network provides local service to meet the needs of aerospace sub-contractors anywhere in the world
