Airbus Atlantic, dedicated to the production of aircraft components, inaugurated this Thursday a factory in Santo Tirso, in the north of Portugal, with an investment of close to 40 million euros and which provides for 250 jobs. "The choice of Portugal is a crucial factor for success in the face of our industrial challenges", assured the CEO of Airbus Atlantic, Cédric Gautier, during the inauguration. The unit began to be built in 2020 in a space of 20,000 square meters and is already operating with more than a hundred workers, reported EFE. Airbus hopes to reach 250 workers next year and does not rule out new investments, since only half of the facilities' land is being used. The Portuguese Prime Minister, António Costa, was also present at the event, who highlighted that the aerospace industry already represents more than 18,000 jobs and an annual turnover of 1,700 million euros in the Portuguese country. "Portugal defined in 2017 the aerospace area as a new cluster that we want to develop in our country," he insisted. Currently, Airbus Atlantic, a world leader in the manufacture of pilot seats, produces parts for the A320 and A350 aircraft families in Portugal.
