Growing abroad

There is no doubt that CATEC has become one of the most advanced technological centres in Spain and a reference in R&D in Europe, especially in areas such as drones and unmanned systems, robotics and industry 4.0, additive manufacturing (3D printing) or non-destructive inspection, which are already marking the present and future of the aerospace industry and other important productive sectors. And not because we say it, but the results that we have achieved throughout our 11 years of history and professional trajectory talk by themselves.

We announced some days ago a new milestone in the history of FADA-CATEC, and especially in our internationalization and growth process towards foreign markets. This is no other than the first project in the field of technological developments in 3D printing outside the European continent, thanks to the collaboration with the company INVAP Argentina, which means our leap crossing the ocean to Latin America, precisely in an area of great value such as components and parts manufacturing for satellites and launchers for the space sector.

In a year in which precisely the city of Seville is assuming and leading the presidency of the Community of Ariane Cities (CVA), and Andalusia is boosting its growth in the aeronautical sector reached in the last decade, we are convinced that this new CATEC project will contribute to show the high technological and industrial capacity that our industry has and to continue encouraging our companies to keep on on this good path, betting on R&D and high added value activities.

The latest figures for the year 2017 are again clear and consolidate Andalusia as a region that has not stopped growing in turnover, employment and exports in the aerospace sector, and that already faces the future with new challenges and illusions. The new strategic plan of the sector must be a key element in all this, and the base for the Andalusian aerospace sector to continue growing abroad, with the support of all the agents involved and with the R&D and the promotion of innovation as main allies. Only this way will strengthen our position as a of the fastest growing industries in the European and international level, and with better prospects for the coming years.

New opportunities for the industry

Rate it

After this new channel of communication has been started and knowing that it has been very well accepted by the different agents and actors which compose the Andalusian aeronautical sector, we launch this second edition with the aim of continuing diffusing the initiatives and activities developed by CATEC to support companies to improve their competitiveness and incorporation of new technologies which will contribute to increment and consolidate the aeronautical industry in Andalusia.
And we do so in this occasion focusing on the announcement of CATEC’s services and technological capacities in one of the most  important air shows held at global level, Le Bourget, the appointment par excellence of the European aeronautical sector, where we attend excited and convinced of the great possibilities that this show offers to the Andalusian productive network, not only in terms of getting new contracts which carry out more incomes and more employment for our companies, but also in terms of agreements or strategic alliances for the development of new researching  and innovative projects which can give a bigger added value to the aeronautical activity in Andalusia.
CATEC will be at Le Bourget as the best technological allied for the international aerospace industry and a researching space of excellence pioneer in Europe, that in hardly two years it has become a clear hub in R&D&I projects for the sector, strengthened by two new landmarks for the centre.From one side, the homologation as National Technological Centre from the Ministry of Science and Innovation, a recognition which boosts the centre and that it will allow increase the opportunities of access to regional and national incentives and grants; in other words, to reaffirm its position as pioneer research centre for the sector. And from another side, its recently participation at ICUAS’11, one of the most outstanding global event about unmanned aircrafts, where CATEC scientists have presented the results of the projects developed in Andalusia in this field, remarking its prestigious and researching experience.
Some excellent credentials which shows the huge capacities not only of this centre but also of the aeronautical and aerospace Andalusian sector and  I am sure, with no doubt, they will bring more opportunities of growth and expansion thanks to the appointment in Paris.
There we go, Le Bourget.
