Seamless Factory Integration
No matter who the customer is, Spirit is working to create ongoing, collaborative relationships along every point of the design and manufacturing process. Communication up and down the value chain, greater transparency and a commitment to sharing and solving problems early deliver seamless integration.
Providing Unmatched Value
Spirit’s high-volume production capabilities and established processes enable consistently lower costs for greater value to customers. The company has recently adopted clean-sheet costing or “should-be” cost analysis for every part purchased. Spirit is committed to helping suppliers meet expectations by leveraging buying power on their behalf and providing lean consulting on site.

Greater commercial industry production demands are being met with significant investments in Spirit AeroSystems locations across the globe. Recently, Spirit announced a new dispatch center in Prestwick, Scotland; new capital and infrastructure investments in Subang, Malaysia, and Kinston, North Carolina; and major capital and workforce expansions in Wichita, Kansas. Spirit is ready to meet industry demand with company commitments to support customer success.
