Coexpair, Composites Expertise for Aircraft, is a Belgian company active in the aeronautical sector since 2006. Our strategy is based on an original business model. It offers services to support its customers in the development of new applications in composite materials. This includes the design, development and manufacture of first parts prototypes (no serial production). Once the research is complete, Coexpair extends its offer to the assembly of production equipment needed for RTM industrialization. On a general way, Coexpair is supporting its customers from the idea that sprouts in their design office up to the installation of their workshop.

Today Coexpair is a recognized partner of the largest OEM and Tier-1 suppliers in the sector. Several European companies have become regular customers, including Airbus and Safran groups. Our company is a unique place in Europe to develop and to transfer advanced composite manufacturing technologies
