Solvay-Spirit partnership formed in Scotland

Solvay says that it has become a strategic partner of Spirit’s aerospace innovation center (AIC) based in Prestwick, Scotland.

Plans are for the companies to improve composites to meet the additional requirements of future aircraft and “de-risk and shorten” their development.

“Solvay’s expertise in product development, combined with our own capabilities in advanced manufacturing and aerospace design, will allow us to create new technologies and processes that will push the industry forward,” said Jahan Ali, director of research and technology, Europe at Spirit AeroSystems.
