Ascent Aerospace supplies aerospace tooling systems, assembly automation and factory integration. We employ >1,300 industry professionals and span nine companies with >1 million sq.ft of manufacturing space. We rarely have to set foot outside Ascent to procure key supply chain elements, which gives us greater control over schedules and avoids costly mark-ups. It’s no surprise, then, that just about every western commercial aircraft flown today is made using our technology, machines, tools and systems.
