MSM exhibits at Aeromart Toulouse

MSM attended the recent ‘Business to Business Aeromart’ in France with a stand in the UK Pavilion, supported by the ADS Toulouse office.It’s the third in a series of events this year – the previous two being Seattle and Munich.

Six other supply chain companies from the UK aerospace industry were also there to take advantage of the ‘speed dating’ type of organisation which brought together suppliers and customers from across the world. Altogether, more than 600 companies registered for the event with some of the bigger companies having as many as 10 delegates on their stands.

The UK and Southern Ireland contingent were invited to tour the new ‘wide body’ A350 production line at Airbus, where they were celebrating delivery of the 50th aircraft. The order book stands at more than 800 aircraft at the moment with more expected, as airlines’ experience is gained in its operational capability.  It’s the most technologically advanced aircraft ever built by Airbus having, amongst other attributes, carbon fibre re-enforced polymer wings and fuselage. MSM has a component on this aircraft of course, through one of our major customers.

Meetings were arranged for MSM with 14 potential customers over the two-day period and contact was made with half a dozen others, really to get MSM’s profile better known in mainland Europe. From the total number of meetings, it’s expected that we should have real opportunities with five potential customers, one of which has already signed a NDA.
