    News | 19 Jun 2015 08:35 | Murdo Morrison

    ​As Airbus ramps up output, it is first-tier suppliers such as Latecoere that must get the balance right between capital investment and meeting the tight delivery demands of its biggest customer. This dilemma can be seen at Latecoere’s main facility in Toulouse, where two giant riveting machines have been newly installed to join the seven Korean-made metal panels that make up the A330’s fuselage section 15.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Diversification-pays-off-for-Latecoere-413216/

  • ANALYSIS: How TBM brand has created a halo effect for Daher

    News | 18 Jun 2015 07:23 | Murdo Morrison

It is beginning to take that business transatlantic, beyond its traditional domestic customer base, although Europe remains a driver of growth too.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-How-TBM-brand-has-created-a-halo-effect-for-Daher-413215/
