This workgroup has been created by a number of specialist aeronautical firms located on the Andalusia Technology Park (PTA). Six new firms have just joined, and will now work alongside the existing members to promote cooperation and, in turn, improve their competitiveness in both national and international markets.
The principal mission of the Aeronautical Systems Business Cluster is to generate a cooperation space in which the member firms can develop and innovate, creating a collaboration environment and promoting the aeronautical sector.
The group’s first meeting took place earlier this year, in June. The members found that their collaboration could lead to a number of new business opportunities, so they therefore decided to promote the consolidation of the cluster
According to Antonio Gomez-Guillamon, Managing Director of AERTEC Solutions, one of the members of the cluster, “the collaboration of all the specialist aeronautical technology firms that make up this cluster facilitates access to a complex global market, guaranteeing a certain degree of competitiveness”.
“Without doubt, bringing in the knowledge of two technological firms will significantly increase results”, he concluded.
The leading firms in the aeronautical sector, such as Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Bombardier, ESA and EADS, all require highly specialised suppliers, capable of constant innovation and with the capacity to meet their needs. In this sense, joint collaboration initiatives like this will help this group of firms to not only broaden their commercial horizons but also to grow their businesses.
During the meeting that took place this week on the PTA, the six new members were introduced, and they will now contribute alongside the existing members of the group to create business synergies. The six new members of the group are: Fujitsu, Centro de Tecnologías Ferroviarias de Adif, Promálaga, IBM, Atyges and DHV Technology. With these new additions, the number of members of the cluster now stands at 16.
