Aerospace engineering consultancy BASE of Dundonald, Northern Ireland has won a major export deal working with Zurich-based Jet Aviation on a new aircraft project.
The company won the business through its participation in a series of Invest Northern Ireland export programmes including trade missions to the Farnborough, Paris and Berlin air shows.
Jet Aviation is a global leader in aircraft engineering, refurbishment and maintenance services whose clients include Bombardier Aerospace, Boeing and Airbus.
BASE director Ian Kelly said: ‘This is very significant business for us from one of the world’s most respected engineering businesses in commercial and private jet aviation services.
‘We gained the business because of the scale of our experience and reputation for excellence in key disciplines such as stress analysis that we’ve provided over the years to other aircraft engineering operations.
‘Using our extensive industry experience and technology, we provide customers with the specialist skills needed to ensure the structural integrity of their products throughout the design phase, certification and into service.’
