Sonaca continues to rely on thyssenkrupp Aerospace
Sonaca Montreal, a leading company in the manufacturing of large aluminum aerostructures, has opted for a long-term partnership with thyssenkrupp Aerospace and has extended its contract, which has been in effect since 2016. Through 2023, thyssenkrupp's aerospace experts will be responsible for warehouse and supply chain management as well as comprehensive processing services for the just-in-time materials required for the Sonaca location in Mirabel, Quebec.
"It is very important for us to precisely understand our customers' requirements, develop tailored solutions and ensure that they can concentrate fully on their core business," explains Arina van Oost, Managing Director thyssenkrupp Aerospace Canada, who adds: "Through various workshops and a close exchange we were able to further increase the service level for Sonaca and offer additional services".
In order to meet the increased requirements and ensure just-in-time deliveries on a daily basis, we invested in additional storage space and processing equipment. At the heart of this is the new waterjet cutting machine, which enables aluminum plate to be cut exactly to customer specifications.
Sonaca has committed to the cooperation: "thyssenkrupp Aerospace has established itself as a reliable partner and helps us to achieve our goals," says Paul Constanzo, who becomes CEO of Sonaca Montreal on July 1st.
thyssenkrupp Aerospace is a leading global supplier of materials, supply chain solutions and metal processing services for the aerospace industry. The company has a global network of 44 locations with over 2,000 employees in more than 20 countries.
