Shimco, a world-wide leader in the manufacture of precision parts and gap management solutions, announced today their participation at the 51st International Paris Air Show held June 15-21 in Le Bourget, France. In Hall 3, C60 Shimco will join 75 other aerospace exhibitors within the Canadian Pavilion, together with the Ontario group. The Ontario Government, in partnership with the Ontario Aerospace Council, is organizing the Ontario presence at PAS 2015.
Peter Voss, President, CEO and owner of Shimco and Jennifer Voss, a director of Shimco, are attending the event and will also be meeting with a major Indian aerospace supplier to finalize a representative agreement for exclusive representation of Shimco in India. Peter Voss initially met with potential Indian representatives and distributors at Aero India earlier this year in Bangalore and Mumbai, India.
The International Paris Air Show (PAS) is the most important trade event for the global aerospace industry in 2015. A total of 2,000 exhibitors from 44 countries and over 200,000 visitors are expected to attend. Working collaboratively with the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada and the Canadian Embassy in Paris, Industry Canada leads the organization of the Canadian presence at PAS. The Department’s involvement consists of leading a series of initiatives, including: the Minister of Industry’s program; the organization of the Showcase portion of the Canadian Pavilion; the Canada Chalet; a welcome reception; a speaker series; targeted meeting program for companies; networking activities; and support for the Canada reception.
Peter Voss comments: “We are set to once again exhibit alongside other leading Canadian and Ontario aerospace companies at the Paris Air Show. In addition to the networking value this show offers in connecting with key aerospace suppliers and partners, this event is especially strategic for Shimco with the planned formalization of a representative agreement with one of India’s largest aerospace components suppliers. A key meeting is also scheduled with a major European aerospace distributor to further our discussions on a very significant European distribution agreement. Our vision is to be a preferred strategic partner to global aerospace, space and defence OEMs and Tier 1 system-integrators, providing value and service on everything that flies, and these partner agreements are in-line with that vision.”
