CIRCOR International - Partnering for Success - Airbus A350 XWB

Investment in Resources and Talent Lands Partnership with Messier Bugatti

CIRCOR Aerospace is partnering with Messier Bugatti (a SAFRAN company) to design, develop and manufacture a complete suite of new, integrated sensing and control solutions for the Airbus A350 XWB. The expansive content includes landing gear wheel tachometers, cockpit brake pedal transmitter units, landing gear system door actuators, hydraulic valves and valve assemblies for the main and nose landing gear hydraulic system, and three additional valve manifolds for the braking system.

CIRCOR Aerospace was given the opportunity to bid on the Airbus A350 XWB project, based upon the Circor Aerospace facilities in France, capabilities in the United States, and the growing engineering capability across the group. Key Circor Aerospace representatives continued to make face to face meetings with Messier Bugatti, working to create first rate engineering proposals, proving that Circor was willing to make investments into the partnership and program.

With the combined awards, Circor Aerospace emerges as a major landing gear system partner to Messier-Bugatti on the A350 XWB program.
