Nexcelle’s parent companies Safran Nacelles and Middle River Aircraft Systems have extensive design, production and support capabilities in all aspects of engine nacelles: from pylons, mounts, fan cowls, nozzles and thrust reversers to acoustic treatment, thermal protection and anti-icing.
Safran Nacelles is the second largest nacelle systems provider worldwide, and the leader globally for nacelles on top-of-the-line business jets. A subsidiary of Safran, it employs 3,800 people at eight sites in France, the United Kingdom, the United States and Morocco.
Safran Nacelles provides nacelle systems for all the market segments, from regional and business aircraft to the largest airliners. The company has unmatched expertise in integrating nacelles and their components, including the world’s first Electrical Thrust Reverser Actuation System (proven in service on the Airbus A380), and advanced acoustic treatment (applied to nacelles for the A380 and Sukhoi’s Superjet 100).
Middle River Aircraft Systems is one of the top suppliers of jet engine thrust reversers and nacelle systems. The company also produces a variety of specialized structures for major aircraft manufacturers – including Boeing and Lockheed Martin – for commercial and military aircraft.
Middle River employs a workforce of about 800 employees at its Baltimore, Maryland site. In addition to design and manufacturing, Middle River Aircraft Systems provides technical support and spares services for a variety of aerostructures.
