    ​Becoming a tier one in the aerospace supply chain is a tough business, and the 21-year rise of Dema from $2 million-turnover boutique design house to one of Italy’s foremost aerostructures players has not been without growing pains.

  • ANALYSIS: How Selex adds value under the skin

    News | 10 Nov 2014 15:59 | Dominic Perry

    ​Of the cluster of aerospace and defence assembly plants clustered around Milan, Selex ES's facility at Nerviano is perhaps the hardest to quantify. For example, Alenia Aermacchi's factory at Venegono Superiore makes jet trainers and the Vergiate plant of AgustaWestland churns out helicopters - both highly visible, tangible end products. The Selex site, on the other hand, makes a huge number of components that are invariably tucked away underneath the skin of the aircraft - radars, mission systems and sensors, and so on. That those systems are vital is not in dispute, however they tend to be overshadowed by the platform they are installed on.
