Our Bureau - : Mar 19, 2023 - : 8:55 pm

Stelia Aerospace Canada, a wholly owned subsidiary of Airbus Atlantic, has a new name: Airbus Atlantic Canada.

Based in Mirabel since 2014, the company manages the design and manufacturing of the front and aft fuselage sections for the Airbus A220 programme, as well as the assembly and system equipping of centre fuselage section for the Bombardier Global 7500 business jet. It currently employs 600 people and plans to hire nearly 200 in 2023.

“Taking the name Airbus Atlantic Canada marks an important step in our history. We are proud to wear the Airbus Atlantic colours. As such, we will continue to innovate and equip ourselves with the cutting-edge technologies essential to our sustainability and growth. To do so, we will rely on an agile and modern organisation where initiative is highly valued”, said Eric Ibañez, Managing Director of Airbus Atlantic Canada.

Airbus Atlantic was created on Jan. 1 last year. As a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airbus and a key player in the company’s value chain, Airbus Atlantic was created to meet the major aeronautical challenges of the future: increased competition, higher production rates, modernization of the industrial system and preparation for low-carbon aviation.

“Airbus Atlantic is a unique model of a Tier 1 supplier, positioned at the heart of Airbus’ industrial system. With our subsidiary Airbus Atlantic Canada, we are contributing to Airbus’ ambition to consolidate its position as a leading player in Canadian aerospace and to ensure the full potential of the A220. Our Mirabel site is at the forefront of technology and industrial modernity and has highly innovative and competitive aerostructure production capabilities. As such, it plays a key role in our industrial strategy and directly supports the development of the aerospace industry in Canada,” said Cédric Gautier, CEO of Airbus Atlantic.
