This industrial site located in Wichita, Kansas was acquired in May 2014. Back then, it specialised in surface treatment and assembly. Figeac Aero transformed the site to make it a model of industrial excellence in North America.

To increase its competitiveness, the Company has brought three different skillsets together under a single roof

  • Machining
  • Surface treatment
  • Assembly

 

Wichita: a targeted positioning

The industrial site has made the production of large-scale aluminium parts one of its specialities. It combines some of the most sought after large-scale machining and surface treatment capabilities in the US.

In addition, Wichita is ideally located at the heart of the US aerospace industry and near Canada and Mexico. The site is able to meet the production needs of the sector in this region of the world.
