TRELLEBORG, Sweden—Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will build a new manufacturing facility in Conde sur Noireau, France, to produce high-performance seals and elastomeric components for major aerospace customers. This will upgrade the company's existing Conde plant.
The new $6.8 million, 32,300 sq.-ft. plant will employ around 100.
"Demand for high-performance sealing solutions is favorable in the aerospace industry," said Trelleborg Sealing Solutions president Claus Barsøe. "This facility will be an effective resource for our existing and future aerospace customers. The choice to keep manufacturing (for the aerospace sector) in France shows Trelleborg's commitment to the aviation industry within the country."
Plant construction will start soon, for full operation in late 2014.
