The German company Flammaerotec, part of the Flamm Group, officially initiated the construction of a new manufacturing facility in the Turkish district Corlu, the country’s Investment Support and Promotion Agency disclosed. The factory which will produce aircraft components is located in the European Free Zone in Tekirdag in northwestern Turkey.

The Turkish plant of Flammaerotec, a certified supplier to European aircraft manufacturer Airbus, will produce parts for the Airbus A380 model. The production will thereafter be exported to Germany for assembly. The new facility will cost a total investment of 15 million euro and once it starts operating at full capacity, it will employ 300 people.

"Turkey is already home to a Flamm Group plant in Cerkezkoy, Tekirdag which manufactures metal parts for durable household goods. Turkey’s wide labor pool of professional managers and skilled laborers once again led us to choose the country for a new production plant", Frieder Flamm, CEO of Flamm Group, said at the official ceremony.
