Aerospace Chief Is Casualty Of Bombardier Restructure

Canadian OEM Bombardier has announced it is reorganising its business structure and the changes will see Guy Hachey, the president and COO of its aerospace division, take retirement.

The restructure sees the aerospace division split into business aircraft, commercial aircraft and a new business arm: aerostructures and engineering, which will design and develop advanced composite and metallic aerostructures for civil aircraft.

The changes will see 1,800 jobs lost, the equivalent of 4.8 per cent of the company’s workforce, as the group functions and customer services division are absorbed into the three aerospace functions.

The restructure will be in place from January 1 next year, Bombardier confirmed, and the head of the aerostructures and engineering division will be appointed in the coming weeks.
