Aerospace machining, aerostructures assembly, special processing, and forging are key skill areas for which Aequs recruits.

"Because of our industry's batch production operations of highly complex parts, our employees must possess a mindset for precision machining. Of course, they should also feel passion for the aerospace, oil and gas, and automotive industries." Melligeri added.

Aequs owes its success to its diverse and dedicated team of talented employees, united across geographical and cultural boundaries to achieve excellence.
