Circor wins Airbus contract

Corona, California-based Circor Aerospace Products (CAP) has been selected by Messier-Bugatti to design, develop and manufacture a complete suite of speed sensing and control solutions for the Airbus A350 XWB.

Products to be developed include the landing gear wheel tachometers and cockpit brake pedal transmitter units.

Once developed, Circor Aerospace will perform final assembly and testing at its Bodet Aero facilities in France, with support from its Morocco-based Atlas Productions subsidiary.

Circor Aerospace was previously awarded the design and development contracts for the A350 XWB landing gear door actuators and landing gear hydraulics control manifolds.

Bodet Aero in Chemille, France, and Atlas Productions in Tangiers, Morocco, were both acquired last year by Circor Aerospace Products.

With approximate annual sales of $125m (£78m), the Circor Aerospace Products Group is part of Circor International, which is based in Burlington, Massachusetts.
