Mecaer America, Inc. (MAI), a subsidiary of Mecaer Aviation (MAG; Stand 1460), recently attained UTC Aerospace Systems Supplier Gold status.

To achieve this status in UTC’s (Stand OE4) program, Mecaer America meets the following criteria: the company did not have any quality rejections for the last 12 months; it ranks above a six out of seven on the UTC internal customer satisfaction survey; 100 percent of its deliveries were on time for the past 12 months; and the company received more than 80 percent on the UTC supplier health assessment.

“We are honored to have received this award from UTC,” said Chris O’Neill, president of MAI. “This is recognition of the efforts and success of all the employees at MAI and could not have been achieved without their continuous and uncompromised focus on delivery, quality, and professionalism. Congratulations to the entire MAI team. I always knew we had a great group; now our customers recognize it too.”

MAI’s facility in Montreal, Quebec, is 75,000 sq ft and functions as MAG’s design, development, qualification, and manufacturing center for fully integrated fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft landing gear systems.

Through UTC and MAI’s business relationship, the latter supplies UTC with major landing gear assemblies for Gulfstream models including the G450/G550, G500/G600, and G650. These products include complete nose gears, main gear shock absorbers, retract actuators, side brace locking actuators, and uplocks.
