Move to Upgraded Aerospace Manufacturing Facility Announced

Trelleborg formalized the agreement to construct a new manufacturing facility in Condé sur Noireau, France, to produce high-performance seals and elastomeric components for major aerospace customers. The facility is part of the Trelleborg Sealing Solutions business area of Trelleborg Group and represents an upgrading of the existing facility in Condé.

The investment of approximately five million EUR is funded by Trelleborg in conjunction with the Calvados Council and the Community of Municipalities of the county of Condé. Manufacturing of aerospace components will continue in Condé in the new 3,500 meter square facility that will employ around one hundred executives and skilled workers.

“Demand for high-performance sealing solutions is favorable in the aerospace industry,” says Business Area President, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, Claus Barsøe. “This facility will be an effective resource for our existing and future aerospace customers. The choice to keep aerospace manufacturing in France shows Trelleborg’s commitment to the aviation industry within the country.”

Local dignitaries, Pascal Allizard, Mayor of Condé sur Noireau and Jean-Léonce Dupont, Président Conseil Général du Calvados, attended a ribbon cutting ceremony for the first stone laid for the new facility. The ceremony was attended by senior management from Trelleborg, including Claus Barsøe, President of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions and Roger Kent, President of Global Elastomers.

The construction of the plant will begin in the fall of 2013 to be fully operational in late 2014.
