Sous traitance : Canada !

Bonjour !

Les PME Canadiennes du secteur Aero, n'ont pas bénéficié de leur part habituelle de marché sur les derniers développements !
Pas assez de regroupements en Tier 1
Pas assez de RD !
Pas assez de capitalisation !
Le Canada passe du 4eme au 5eme rang, dans l'aero !
Signal d'alarme tiré par : Claude Lajeunesse, patron du groupement Aero local, AIAC
La consigne : Etre prêts pour ne pas louper les Monocouloirs A et B !

Canada SMEs react to CSeries wake-up call
By Stephen Trimble

It was already a rough decade for Canadian aerospace suppliers. First, Canadian content dwindled on the Boeing 787, compared with the 767 and 757 it replaces. The Airbus A350 supply chain virtually ignored Canadian industry. Ditto for Embraer's new family of business jets.

But the real wake-up call came with the Bombardier CSeries. As Canadian industry's role shrank further, even Bombardier agreed that fewer of its industrial neighbours were competitive at the level of global rivals.

"Not many were ready to take on the big work packages on CSeries," says Claire Auroi, Bombardier director of supply chain contracts and corporate responsibility. "We had to go to the USA and Europe," she adds. "Hopefully, next time they will be ready."


Auroi discussed challenges facing Canadian industry on the eve of a supply chain summit in Montreal on 29 April for aerospace small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), part of a broader push led by the Aerospace Industry Association of Canada (AIAC) to turn Canadian SMEs into global competitors.

"Canada does not play as hard and as well as it should," says Claude Lajeunesse, president and chief executive of AIAC.

HARSH TRUTH

Last year, an AIAC-commissioned report found Canada had slipped from the world's fourth-largest aerospace supplier to fifth. Research and development spending by Canadian aerospace companies slipped from 12% to 6% of sales over the past decade.

The contrast is startling between Canada's struggling SMEs and its relatively stronger prime contractors: Bombardier, CAE and Pratt & Whitney Canada. Heroux-Devtek, cited for anticipating the need for Tier 1 suppliers, is a "shining example of what can be done if you have the right approach", Lajeunesse says.

But many of Canada's aerospace firms lack the technology and the financial firepower to compete on global projects, where original equipment manufacturers want suppliers to integrate advanced systems and share the risk of expensive development programmes.

The AIAC and Bombardier want local suppliers to reverse these trends quickly. The hope is that a robust Canadian supply chain will be ready by the end of the decade to participate when Airbus and Boeing move to replace the A320 and 737.
