Excellent news

We publish this new issue of our digital newsletter, before the expected summer break, with the satisfaction of having worked hard during the `last course´, and recounting both the achievements and the ones that are still to be achieved.

Once again, the Andalusian aeronautical industry has reasons to celebrate. The statistical report of the sector, recently presented by the President of the Junta de Andalucía in Le Bourget, has once again highlighted the strength of our sector, confirming Andalusia as the third aerospace pole in Europe.

The aerospace sector has grown again. Its turnover has already reached 2,400 million euros, directly employing 14,463 people. In addition, it has grown in a quantitative way, since high-skilled jobs have increased year after year to almost 35% of employees in the sector. This growth has also been international: the sector's exports to the whole world grew exponentially to around 1 billion euros, positioning Andalusia as the second Spanish exporting region within the aeronautical sector, with 36% of the total and only behind Madrid.

The good news of the sector is excellent news for the aerospace business community that Aerópolis represents, since the Park concentrates the majority of the companies of the sector in Andalusia, in particular, more than 80 of the 113 that compose the sector. In this new bulletin we also feature other good news from and for our companies: the agreement between Alestis and CATEC to collaborate on R & D, the Aerotecnic award for excellence, Navair's new projects in the USA, Skylife excellent forecasts for turnover and employment, or the recent visit of the European Commissioner for Economic Affairs together with the President of the Junta to our Park in order to get to know an example of a successful project.

Generating good news for our companies is our work and we will keep on doing it, with renewed strength and illusions, to boost the development of the aerospace sector in Andalusia.
