Boeing purchases the first products of Georgian aircraft composite parts

Aero-Structure Technologies Cyclone (ATC), a joint venture between Israeli company Elbit Cyclone and Georgia’s Partnership Fund, issued the first document on the purchase of products. The first products made in Georgia were made for the Boeing Company.

The first document on the purchase of high-tech products produced in Georgia according to international standards was issued at the plant of aircraft composite parts. The document was signed by the director of Elbit Cyclone, David Widan, and the director of ATC, Ari Weisbort.

The company has completed its work in test mode, and has already begun to produce the first products for sale. At this time, the plant employs over 120 people who, for advanced training, have been re-trained by specialists from Elbit Cyclone. Training continues in stages. After a full load of the plant, the enterprise as a whole will employ almost 300 people.

At this time, the certification process at the ATC is over. The first factory of composite parts of aircraft in the South Caucasus has an ISO certificate and a certificate of conformity from the Boeing Company.

According to the director of the investment department of the Partnership Fund and the project manager Nino Cholokashvili, the plant for the production of composite parts for civil aircraft is the best example to attract investment to the country.

Recall that Partnership Fund together with Elbit Cyclone founded the construction of the plant to produce aircraft parts. The investment cost of the project is US $ 93 million. We are talking about an enterprise that manufactures corresponding parts of high standards for civil aircraft from composite materials, and they include aircraft doors, aerodynamic surfaces, control panels, and other parts. The company will supply these products not only to Boeing, but also to such well-known aircraft manufacturers, as Airbus, Bombardier and others.
