Everything indicates that Mitsubishi Aircraft will announce the opening of an engineering office in Montreal next Thursday. Contrary to what we mentioned yesterday, the Bombardier transaction is not on the agenda.
The labor Shortage
Although the certification of the Spacejet M90 is almost complete, Mitsubishi has a lot of work to do. It has to develop the M100, which is scheduled to be in service by 2023. It has a great need for engineers to develop the M100, which will meet the US scope clause.
The labor shortage is also rife in Japan where the aerospace industry is not very developed. Given his lack of experience as an aircraft manufacturer, Mitsubishi is struggling to recruit elsewhere on the planet. The restructuring of Bombardier Aviation in business aircraft unleashes talent and represents an opportunity for Mitsubishi.
Recruitment in Montreal
Mitsubishi’s announcement of the opening of an engineering office in Montreal will boost its career event on September 21st. The end of the future production of the CRJ entails a risk of premature departure of some experienced employees. Mitsubishi is therefore looking to recruit talent before they leave for elsewhere.>>> Follow us on Facebook and Twitter
