Management and organization

So that our customers have a more comprehensive and streamlined service, our organization is structured into four operational divisions: landing gear and systems integration, wheels and brakes, systems equipment and MRO.

By leveraging highly complementary products and technologies, we are able to take a more holistic approach to the business. Yet each division has its own market focus to provide fully tailored solutions for customers.
