Ontic says it has taken an important step in its journey to expand their footprint in mainland
Europe. Ontic, already a worldwide leader in supplying and licensing established aircraft parts
and services, alongside significant growth in their established markets in the U. S. and UK, says
it is now looking to secure in-region licenses from France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
Gareth Blackbird, VP and Chief Commercial Officer explains, “We’ve been working hard to
raise our profile and building connections in the region with the appointment earlier this
year of Lilian Clede, Business Director for Europe.
‘The next step is to establish a physical location in France in order to secure any licenses
from our partners in France or to secure any French military content. So, we’re pleased to
have signed a co-operation agreement with Falgayras, to progress growth opportunities
for Ontic within France.
‘The agreement enables us to leverage the excellent reputation and capabilities of
Falgayras, to support our French growth ambitions – giving us a physical presence in a
region that is truly at the heart of the aerospace industry in Europe.”

reputation as a leading OEM for established and certified aircraft parts.
‘We are delighted to partner with Ontic, not only in helping them to secure their future
business in France but also to strengthen the cooperation between our two companies
which will also enable us to benefit from their expertise and excellence.’
