"The Singapore Airshow is a great opportunity for Spirit leaders to meet with partners and industry leaders from around the world to build relationships and formalise agreements," said Spirit president and CEO Tom Gentile. "Members of our R&D team and various business areas will be discussing the latest technological innovations and future of the global industry in Singapore."
Spirit will showcase its fabrication capabilities as part of the company's growth focus, including information about its centres of excellence for three-, four- and five-axis complex parts and chemical processing. Spirit is one of the largest manufacturers of machined parts in the world, producing more than 38,000 unique parts to support its current aerostructures business.
The Singapore Airshow is held every two years and offers a unique platform for industry thought leadership and partnerships. The show combines both military and commercial aviation in one location, which helps to connect exhibitors like Spirit with high-level military delegations, leading industry players and top government officials.
Gentile will also present at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) conference in Singapore in the days prior to the Singapore Airshow. Spirit collaborates with A*STAR, a global technology consortium focused on aerospace, scientific discovery and technological innovation.
Spirit AeroSystems is one of the world's largest manufacturers of aerostructures with design and build capabilities for both commercial and defence customers.
