At the ceremony of the award, Mr. Claude QUILLIEN, Senior Vice President from Safran AE, gave a speech as following.
“We started this journey in 2013. We were looking for partners who were able to machine this critical material, which is complex and difficult to be machined. When I looked everywhere, one guy in AeroEdge helped us to machine and to deliver this part.
Last time I was in your plant in 2016, the plant was not completely finished for mass production because it was the beginning of the plant. It was a big success and I’m very pleased to be with you today, and to have been here in the beginning of the story. I’m quite sure it is not finished and you will be part of new journey we are launching for new engines.”
We are very honored to receive such impressive award from Safran AE, with which have been making long-standing relationships since our establishment in 2015. We look forward to continuing to exceed expectations and developing innovative technology and services with Safran AE.
