  • ANALYSIS: Revamped production line allows ATR to ramp up

    News | 16 Jun 2015 06:43 | Murdo Morrison

    ​It is possibly not a problem ATR thought it would ever have to face when its annual output languished in single figures a decade ago. But buoyant demand for the Toulouse-based airframer’s twin turboprops – it took a record 160 orders in 2014 – meant it has had to find a way of raising production beyond a capacity limit of eight aircraft a month. Its solution? Splitting its final assembly lines in two last year to allow it to go up to rate 10 by the end of 2015.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Revamped-production-line-allows-ATR-to-ramp-up-413243/
