Spirit AeroSystems (Spirit) has announced that Belcan International will be onsite as a strategic partner in Spirit’s Aerospace Innovation Centre (AIC) in Prestwick, Scotland.  Belcan will work directly alongside Spirit engineers when the facility opens.

The companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enter into a strategic partnership. Belcan, a global supplier of engineering, supply chain, technical recruiting and information technology services, will provide Spirit with broad-based engineering capabilities and specific skills, primarily focused on supporting Spirit’s wing engineering activities in Prestwick. This includes multi-disciplinary engineering skills, program management and manufacturing engineering resources.

The AIC is an 85,000 ft² center to house Spirit’s engineering design and manufacturing expertise alongside advanced development and pre-production equipment in a collaborative environment with key partners.
