Semcon enters new framework agreement with GKN Aerospace

Semcon has entered a new framework agreement with GKN Aerospace. The agreement is for services spanning Semcon’s entire offering, such as design, simulation and calculations, software development, and aftermarket solutions.

This is a field that is constantly under development.

“We look forward to supporting GKN on their journey and the challenges that lie ahead,” Ingvar Gillgren, Department Manager Product Information at Semcon, said. “Working with GKN’s experts, we can develop technology that really makes a difference.”
