The MTorres Group has been significantly involved in the Airbus 380 Project, which represents one of the great European projects and a giant leap forwards for the aerospace sector.

MTorres has contributed towards this international project through the design and manufacturing of machines and assembly lines for several parts of the aircraft such as the fuselage, the rudders and the stabilisers. These developments, carried out using its own technology in competition with other international companies, have taken place over the past three years. This participation has led to a turnover for MTorres of over 70 million Euros and the employment of 200 people directly and 300 indirectly.
