Hexcel (Stamford, Conn., USA) reported on July 9 that has joined Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research Aerospace Programme (A*STAR AP). Intiated in 2007, A*STAR fosters synergies between industry members and its research institutes.

Singapore is the largest manufacturing, repair and overhaul (MRO) hub for the aerospace industry in Asia-Pacific, holding a quarter of the region's market share for MRO activities. Strategic partners in A*STAR AP, including aircraft manufacturers, engine and component OEMs and system providers, can tap into the pool of scientific know-how to optimize opportunities and reduce investment costs. The consortium includes 18 companies and has commissioned 37 projects. Major member companies include Boeing, EADS, General Electric, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls Royce.

Paul Mackenzie, Hexcel's VP Research & Technology, says, "Joining the A*STAR Aerospace Programme will provide Hexcel with additional R&T resources in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region to complement our own world-class composites research facilities in Europe and the USA."
