Vermont's Premier Supply Chain Trade Show - Facilitating Sourcing and Procurement Opportunities

Manufacturing for Aerospace and Aviation

Manufacturing for aerospace and aviation relates to the fabrication, production and assembly of parts, components, equipment and vehicles for air and space travel in both the commercial and defense industries. Vehicles include airplanes, helicopters, satellites, shuttles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones.

Vermont is home to a thriving $2 billion aerospace and aviation industry. According to the Economic Impact of Civil Aviation by State study done by the FAA in January of 2015, the economic impact of civil aviation alone for the state of Vermont includes:

  • $1.1 billion in economic output
  • $316 million in earnings
  • 11,081 jobs

Vermont is also home to industry leaders, such as GE Aviation and UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS), and an established, world-class supplier base of over 250 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with capabilities in the areas of:

  • Aerospace design & engineering, aeromedical equipment, aircraft structures and sub-assemblies, aircraft airframes and engines, advanced ceramics, avionics, composites, electronics and electrical systems, fixtures and gages, fuel measurement, landing gears, plastics and polymers, precision machining, maintenance, repair & overhaul (MRO), sensors & sensing systems, turbomachinery, and wire and cable assembly.

World class primes from Airbus, Bell Helicopter, BAE Systems, Boeing, Bombardier, GE Aviation, and Lockheed Martin to Pratt & Whitney, Northrop Grumman, Robinson and Sikorsky rely on Vermont’s manufacturers to design, build and deliver the finest quality products with innovation, speed to market and competitive advantage. The Boeing Company, for example, has 23 suppliers and vendors based in Vermont representing an $88.1 million spend and supporting an estimated 2,800 direct and indirect jobs.

Market opportunities for Vermont in manufacturing for aerospace and aviation include:

  • Close proximity and access to a $23 billion Canadian Aerospace industry for enhanced and integrated supply chain;
  • Increasing demand for precision tooling in the global commercial aircraft MRO market, which, according to Visiongain, already reached $49.2 billion in 2013 in response to growing demand for maintenance services to handle the global fleet of commercial aircraft; and
  • Production of next generation fuel-efficient aircrafts with light-weight materials such as composites and advanced ceramics.
