Founded in 1984 in Brindisi with the activity of gas turbine overhaul and machining, Avioman is an engineering company that today produces structural mechanical components and assemblies mainly for rotary and fixed-wing aircrafts.
In 1999, it started the design, production, maintenance, overhaul and delivering of AGE equipment.
In 2006, the company strengthened its CAM programming skills, expanded its machine pool and focused on precision mechanics.
With a view to transparency, monitorability and growth aimed at supplying an increasingly complete and competitive product, Avioman placed process digitisation at the hearth of its development plans.
