The Andalusian aerospace company Sofitec, specialized in the development of integrated solutions for composite, metallic and assembly projects, has been awarded by Spirit Aerosystems with the 2015 Supplier of the Year for Best New Program Support Award.
An excepcional award for which only top performing suppliers are nominated and with which Spirit recognizes suppliers that have met or exceeded performance expectations and quality, a key aspect in the manufacture of aerostructures.
Sofitec is manufacturing for Spirit, one of the world’s largest non-OEM designers and manufacturers of aerostructures for commercial aircraft, structural composite parts belonging to section 15th of the A350-900 & 1000 fuselage.
Part of Sofitec management team traveled to Wichita (Kansas) to attend August 27th award ceremony. “In 2014 we took major challenges as the commitment to invest over 20 million € for the expansion of our facilities and technological equipment; or the contract with Spirit Aerosystems. Today the first expansion phase is completed, with more than 37,000 sq.m. operating, and Spirit congratulates us for the work done. This award fills us with pride and confidence to continue working on the same marked line” says José Miguel Hernandez, CEO of Sofitec.
In such a highly competitive segment as Aerostructures, Sofitec stands out for its service vocation, efficiency and multi-technological capacity, due to its internal customer-supplier and “lean thinking” management philosophy.
With more than 37.000 sq. m. operating and a strong and continuous investment in new technologies, Sofitec has recently acquired 75,000 additional sq. m. to ensure compliance with the commitments already made and to strengthen its international presence.
Located in Seville, the horizons for Sofitec stretch towards new technological challenges and continuing expanding with clients in “design-to-build” projects.
