Aerostar of Romania has recorded a successful 2014 with turnover up by 23% and net profits by 25%. Exports represented 70% of turnover and there was continued investment in plant, machinery and training, with employment remaining stable at around 1900 people. During 2014, turnover on civil aircraft aerostructures and aviation production rose to over 49% of turnover, while turnover on civil aircraft MRO activities also rose to just under 18%. Nearly 29% of turnover was accounted for by work on defence activities. This follows the strategic path of steadily building up commercial aircraft activities to about 70% of turnover. The mission for the immediate future is to increase this further to reach around 75%, with defence activities remaining stable at about 20%.


The civil aerostructures and aviation products business continues to grow steadily with Aerostar now counted as a prominent Tier 2 supplier in the international aviation supply chain. The company is a major subcontractor of parts and assemblies to companies such as GKN Aerospace and Fokker for a variety of commercial aviation programmes, including those from Airbus, Gulfstream and Dassault. Further qualifications/approvals for Boeing and Bombardier programmes are underway.


Aerostar is also a significant subcontractor for the production of systems and components for landing gears and hydraulic systems. Working primarily with Messier-Bugatti-Dowty, Aerostar produces significant components for aircraft such as the Airbus A320 Family, A330, A350XWB and Boeing 787. The company is also the sole supplier of undercarriages for the Daher-Socata TBM 700 executive turboprop aircraft.
