Forming technology, creating the future

MT Aerospace is an internationally leading group of companies in the field of space transportation, satellites, aircraft equipment and deep space antennas as well as optical and radio telescopes.

We have developed production technologies which are unique in the world. That’s why, today, we are pioneers when it comes to lightweight constructions made of metals and composites, and this is also the reason why we feel right at home where every gram counts: in the aerospace industry.

Our advanced structural components and tanks are successfully deployed in, amongst other things, the European launch system ARIANE, in spacecrafts, satellites and the Airbus and Boeing fleets. We also apply our tireless desire to improve to the development of forward-looking micro-launcher in our rocket factory.
