CHEMILLÉ, FRANCE /Marketwire/ -- The CIRCOR Aerospace Products Group, a business unit of CIRCOR International, has been selected by SAFRAN/Messier-Bugatti to design, develop, and manufacture a complete suite of new, integrated speed sensing and control solutions for the Airbus A350 XWB, including the landing gear wheel tachometers and cockpit brake pedal transmitter units.
CIRCOR Aerospace will develop these precision controls using its global engineering resources and perform final assembly and testing at its Bodet Aero Chemillé, France, facilities, with support from our Tangier, Morocco, ATLAS Productions subsidiary. CIRCOR Aerospace was previously awarded the design and development contracts for the A350 XWB landing gear door actuators and landing gear hydraulics control manifolds. The award of these three component packages positions the CIRCOR Aerospace team as a major system partner to Messier-Bugatti for the A350 XWB program.
"The CIRCOR Aerospace team in France is proud to be a key partner to Messier-Bugatti on the Airbus A350 XWB. The Bodet Aero business has a long history of providing integrated controls technology to Messier-Bugatti and the contract for this new technology affirms our leading position in sensing and controls," said Jacques Bodet, Director General for CIRCOR - Industria and Bodet Aero in France.
