ThyssenKrupp Aerospace opens first site on African continent

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.
