    Spirit AeroSystems has announced that it has opened a new composite manufacturing facility at its site in Prestwick, Scotland. This facility leverages advanced composite technology from Spirit’s research and development portfolio and brings new work to the site in the form of the Airbus A320 family spoiler. The Rt Hon. Nicola Sturgeon MSP, first minister of Scotland officially opened the new facility.

    “This is the result of a three-year journey to secure production of the spoiler in the UK. This new facility allows us to utilise innovative technologies like the Spirit-developed Resin Transfer Moulding (RTM) solution to better meet the needs of our customer,” said Scott McLarty, Spirit AeroSystems’s senior vice president of Airbus programs.

    The RTM solution supports the high-volume production of spoilers and other monolithic components and promises to deliver improved quality and s

    ignificant cost savings. The investment has allowed Spirit to establish a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility using the latest automation and robotics. With these innovative technologies, Spirit will achieve the required rate of approximately 700 aircraft and 7,000 spoilers annually and create more than 100 new jobs in Scotland.
