Technometra, member of Aero Vodochody group, will deliver Airbus A320 landing gear subassemblies for Messier-Dowty

Technometra RadotĂ­n, a member of Aero Vodochody group and traditional producer of landing gears and aerostructures, has signed a contract on deliveries of the main gear subassemblies for the Airbus A320 aircraft with one of the world-largest landing gear producers - Messier-Dowty, member of the SAFRAN Group. Technometra's mother company Aero Vodochody is the largest aerospace manufacturer in the Czech Republic.

"The contract signed with Messier-Dowty represents a great step forward for our company as well as great reference for our future customers. Technometra has been producing landing gears since the 1930s with more than 10,000 units delivered, and we are very pleased to start cooperation with one of the world's leaders in this segment," said Erik Zajic, CEO of Technometra.

The contract includes deliveries of side stays and actuators and is signed for a period of five years with the option of extension, representing several tens of millions US Dollars. The transfer of production has already started right after the contract signature and first deliveries are planned for the third quarter of 2009.

"We are glad that despite the unfavorable economic situation on the world markets we can congratulate Technometra on a new significant contract. Technometra has a unique experience in landing gears and the modernization and investment introduced into the company's operations in the last two years demonstrate its long-term commitment and contribution to the world's aerostructures market," said Igor Hulak, President of Aero Vodochody, shareholder of Technometra.

In 2008, Technometra year-on-year increased its revenue by 50% and in following two years, this growth rate is planned to increase, among other factors thanks to the contract with Messier-Dowty, recently signed contracts with American companies Epic and Cirrus, and other new projects.
