The Inflexion difference
Inflexion’s international reach was attractive to Shimtech management, who were looking for a partner to help them grow sales and new customer penetration in an expanding global market. Inflexion was able to demonstrate a strong understanding of the sector dynamics owing to its investment in CTC Aviation. Since the buyout, Shimtech have developed new production technologies in composite manufacturing, have continued to take market share through new customer acquisition and have opened a manufacturing facility in Mexico.
We are delighted to be partnering with Inflexion and Auctus. Together we are continuing to build scale in our operations, broadening our technology and capability base, and supporting our global customers as production rates for commercial aircraft continue to increase over the next few years.
