Mitsubishi Aircraft settles in Montreal

To share this publication :

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.

    Mitsubishi was building aircrafts in the 1930s. The famous zero zero fighter with which they bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941. So please do not talk about ” a lack of experience about building aircraft” rather business or civilian aircraft.

      How many engineers that worked in the zero are still employed by Mitsubishi commercial aircraft? You are confusing the past and the great history of Mitsubishi with the actual situation. If they do have such a good experience in aircraft building right now, how do you explain all those delays? And how do you explain that they have been recruiting world wide for years.

    With the few times that I have worked with Japanese counterparts. I feel that the way Japanese do things is at the same time efficient and inefficient. It is extremely efficient when they are dealing internally. But it becomes a puzzle as soon as it steps outside of the country mainly due to cultural difference and language barrier. A simple word document would needs to be read, re-read, re-read, re-read and needs approval from multiple levels before a final stamp. They are extremely picky on the format of the document, font, size, and colors.. they even have a specific way on how to put a stamp on a paper… I suspect lots of delay were caused by the paperwork… but one thing i like about working with Japanese is they are 24/7 on stand by… some literarly sleep in the office…

    Japanese workers are serious, polite, and humble, but distanced and reserved. It is hard to establish a close relationship with them.
    For someone that is used to the western way, you wouldn’t want to work for a japanese company. especially an old-school one.
