European Cluster2

BELLEVUE, WA – April 12, 2016 – In an ongoing effort to bring value to its members, PNAA met with five EU aerospace cluster leaders from the European Aerospace Cluster Partnership (EACP).  These representatives from Belgium, France, Germany and Spain support hundreds of aerospace companies within their clusters.

Jim Sheehan, PNAA board member and International co-Chair said, “This meeting reflects the progress PNAA has made in forging alliances with likeminded aerospace clusters throughout the EU.  Every time a delegation travels abroad, whether we go to Europe or the EU clusters travel to the Pacific Northwest, we build linkages and relationships which accelerate our competitiveness in the global marketplace.”

PNAA expects to experience its largest EU delegation ever during the upcoming February 2017 conference.
