ASM secures first French composite parts production contract for Portuguese client Optimal

ASM is pleased to announce that it has secured the first French composite parts production contract for our Portuguese client Optimal. The contract, which ASM President David Cook values at ‘over €500,000, including spares’, relates to the manufacture of tooling and the series production of interior fittings for the sports variant of a popular French compact saloon car. Parts deliveries will start later this year and extend over a 3 year period.
This type of result, explains Cook, “fully justifies the foresight and courage of a small, dynamic company like Optimal who have big ambitions and who are prepared to invest in their future. Using the services of ASM, with our network of contacts and our proven ability to identify and develop significant business opportunities, Optimal are developing their activities within the framework of a strong but measured strategic plan which will surely see them as a key player in the European composites market in the years to come”.

ASM secures first French aerospace tooling contract for Optimal

ASM is pleased to announce that our client, Optimal of Portugal, has just been awarded its first composite tooling contract by the French aerospace industry. A major aerospace structures supplier has awarded them the contract for a tool which will be used as part of their R&D activities in developing new materials and new procedures in aerospace structures manufacturing.

ASM was engaged by Optimal in September 2016 with the mission of developing their aerospace composite business in France. Working on only a part time basis we have achieved our first result in less than 6 months. Not only is this a testimony to Optimal’s ability to supply high quality tooling at very competitive prices but it also demonstrates how ASM can act as a force multiplier, using its extensive network and knowledge of the industry to achieve results which would have taken the client many years to achieve on their own. We now look forward to our client’s next aerospace contract award.
