AERO Vodochody closes composites production in Cambridge, UK

AERO Vodochody closes composites production in the company Rotortech Aero Composites LTD. in mid April 2011. At present the company finishes last orders for its contractual partners.

English subsidiary company completed orders and concluded contracts. Production program including know-how, which was not subject to military secrets in the UK, was relocated to AERO Vodochody.

There are several reasons for closing the production. High wage costs in the UK in comparison to The Czech Republic, but mainly a new strategy of composites development in AERO Vodochody. AERO invested into the composites production project more than CZK 10 million in the first stage and in the second stage of composites development will invest further CZK 105 million.

"In AERO we are able to run the same production at lower costs and of course distinctively more effectively" says AERO Vodochody president, Mr. Ladislav ?imek.

Since 2007 has been company Rotortech Aero Composites LTD. a reliable supplier for AERO Vodochody in production of Sikorsky S-76 helicopters and presence on the British market made possible for AERO Vodochody to gain important contacts and experience in the composites production, which now successfully uses in its own production.
