Shimco has built a successful business of metallic and non-metallic precision parts, with a specialty in gap management solutions for sub and final assemblies, and partners directly and indirectly with many of the world’s largest Tier 1 and OEM aerospace companies including Airbus, Asco, Boeing, Bombardier Aerospace, Bell Helicopter, Embraer, UTAS, RTI Claro, Sonaca, SPP, MHI and Wesco Aerospace. Avdel Aerospace is honoured to be their exclusive representative in India and we look forward to building their future success in the Indian market.”
