During the trade mission to Germany, Canada Makes visited the Ludwig Bölkow Campus (LBC), a research and technology hub for innovation in aerospace and security manufacturing, and APWorks, an additive manufacturing SME focused in the aerospace industry.
The LBC is a consortium including Siemens, Airbus Group, Technische Universität München, and more. By innovating green technologies, public security, autonomous systems, and more, the site is standing firmly before its reputation as an accomplished group.
The Canadian group toured the campus’ facilities and technologies, noteworthy for both pragmatism and capability.
“That the facilities are impressive is nothing short of accurate,” said Frank DeFalco, the Manager of Canada Makes who is leading the tour. “We are fortunate to have such great hosts to show us this truly innovative space.”
Canada Makes’ mission is focused on visiting manufacturers and innovators on behalf of their Canadian counterparts to build relationships that keep the Canadian economy competitive and vibrant.
Canada Makes is proud to have been kindly hosted by Alexander Mager of Airbus Group Innovations during the Canadian trade mission to Germany.
