Whether it’s off-loading or outsourcing, there is an opportunity for outsourced tooling in the aerospace industry. OEMs are farming out a variety of tooling work. This opportunity comes with expectations, processes and standards that are beyond any industry CIT has ever worked with, requiring the utmost design, quality and expertise.
CIT’s interest in this highly advanced market fits with its capabilities to produce sophisticated tools and high end parts while being cost competitive at the same time. Large aerospace OEMs are looking to CIT because of our small size, competitive nature and talent to do the work faster, cheaper and better. This follows the business model that is prevalent in the automotive industry, with the obvious differences in scale.
CIT will work diligently to be the right supplier for the right aerospace companies where it can add the best value and create the best relationships.
