MECACHROME and AUBERT & DUVAL Announces Creation of MKAD, Joint Venture
Jun 15 15
MECACHROME and AUBERT & DUVAL are pooling their strengths and expertise in a joint venture called MKAD. MECACHROME and AUBERT & DUVAL announced the creation of MKAD, a joint venture specialising in finishing aviation-grade titanium parts. Extending AUBERT & DUVAL's current titanium stream, MKAD will have machining and surface treatment facilities and will integrate end-of-flow operations through to delivery of finished parts, all on a single site. AUBERT & DUVAL and MECACHROME with the creation of MKAD, are building on the partnership of AUBERT & DUVAL, UKTMP and UKAD to form a fully integrated stream for closed die-forged aviation-grade titanium parts from mining through to delivery of finished parts. MKAD's creation will enable AUBERT & DUVAL and MECACHROME, which are already very active on the hard metal machining market, to enhance their expertise in this area, strengthen their positioning on the latest global aerospace programmes, and keep up their development strategy, which has been very active in recent years. MKAD will take the form of an over 7,000 m2 plant to be built in Varilhes, near AUBERT & DUVAL's Pamiers site and Toulouse, France's main aerospace hub. The capital project is planned to ramp up over three years to come on stream starting mid-2016, with the creation of around 80 jobs. The French State, the Midi-Pyrenees region, the Ariege departement council and Varilhes local authorities have rallied round this promising project.
