Ascent Aerospace is a leading provider of tooling systems, factory automation and integration services for the aerospace, defense and space industries. Our unique offering consists of a variety of products and solutions to resolve challenging aerostructure assembly requirements, from wing components and fuselage structures to final assembly lines. As the industry's largest tooling and automation group, Ascent produces a full suite of composite tooling, including layup molds, mandrels, bond tools, and trim and drill fixtures, including the largest Invar molds ever made for aerospace. In addition, Ascent offers automated, high-precision drilling and fastening systems, having installed more than 2,200 systems globally.
As an assembly line integrator, Ascent works with airframers to develop their project and see it through from process design and engineering through build and installation, to ensure it is an efficient and cost effective solution. This strategy has allowed Ascent Aerospace to develop long-term, strategic alliances with the world's foremost manufacturers in the commercial aerospace, business aviation, defense, space launch and satellite industries.
Globally, we have 11 locations, 5 of which are manufacturing plants. Our plants are located in California (formerly Coast Composites), Michigan (formerly Global Tooling Systems and Odyssey Industries), a fabrication plant in Mexico and our drilling and fastening systems plant in New York (Gemcor). In Europe, we are based in France with two offices and have offices in the United Kingdom and Germany. In Asia, we have a presence in Japan and China.
