Defence Applications

In 1995 TECNICHAPA started up the aerospace division. This unit develops components and mechanic welded precision assemblies from defence metallic materials.

The main applications are for structures, equipment's and aircraft engines for the Defence market. The consolidated growth path is the result of being ahead of its customers' satisfaction. TECNICHAPA is now a reference in terms of competitiveness, quality and service.

Following this successful background, in 2006 TECNICHAPA created Wallair Engine Components (WEC), a specialised company acting in the Aerospace and Defence market. The main goal is to deepen its long-term partnerships among the main Defence integrators.
