The OPEX adventure at the Paris Air Show

On Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th June 2019 Stephen Kempton, our Sales and Marketing General Manager, and Ariane Ruiz, French Sales and Marketing Intern, attended the Paris Air Show in Le Bourget.

This trip allowed them to gain insight on the French aerospace market and the particulars of the logistics needs of its main players. Together they managed to have very promising conversations with Tier 1 and 2 aerospace companies both in French and in English. The  Paris Air Show allowed them to create new business opportunities that should take OPEX to the next level of its expansion on the continent in the second half of 2019.  

Aside from expanding their own network through meetings with French aerospace representatives, OPEX were also present on the WEAF stand to support the British aerospace industry and they visited their longstanding customer Safran, for whom we transported a set of landing gears from Gloucester to the Air Show.

Stephen and Ariane were lucky to view flight demonstrations of the French Rafale fighter jets, to witness the flight of a Russian helicopter and to photograph the Ariane space rocket of the European Space Agency (ESA). It was definitely a fascinating and intense couple of days!
