Following a $45 million multi-year order from Airbus and Stelia Aerospace for the production of sheet metal parts for the A350, Nimrod Group decided to accelerate the launch of Azura Polska, its manufacturing plant in Łódź.
“First supply from Poland is scheduled for the beginning of 2016,” said Eddy Ephrati, the CEO of Nimrod Group.
Recruitment of support and production staff is to start in the coming weeks. New employees will travel to France for an intensive training on producing and assembling parts for the A350.
As many as 300 workplaces are expected to be created.
Nimrod Group is a relatively recent player in the aerospace industry, mostly recognized through its legacy business units, ESM and Detampel created in the 60s. Detampel specializes in complex sheet metal work with core competencies in exhaust nozzles and heat exchangers. ESM produces high-volume elementary and standard parts, mainly for Falcon, Rafale, and Airbus aircraft.
