Trelleborg, Sweden – Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will build a new manufacturing facility in Condé sur Noireau, France, to produce high-performance seals and elastomeric components for major aerospace customers. This will upgrade the company’s existing Condé plant.
The new €5m, 3,500 square metre plant will employ around one hundred staff.
Trelleborg Sealing Solutions president Claus Barsøe said: “Demand for high-performance sealing solutions is favourable in the aerospace industry. This facility will be an effective resource for our existing and future aerospace customers. The choice to keep manufacturing [for the aerospace sector] in France shows Trelleborg’s commitment to the aviation industry within the country.”
Plant construction will start in autumn 2013, for full operation in late 2014.
