Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation to open Spacejet centre in Montreal, Canada

Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation is set to open a Spaceject centre in Montreal, Canada.

During its first year, Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation intends to create around 100 jobs focused on certification and entry into service of the Mitsubishi SpaceJet products.

The company plans to increase that number in the following years. The office will be located in the Boisbriand area.

Hisakazu Mizutani, president, Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation, commented: “As a Japanese company with a global market, we are building a strong global presence in order to position the Mitsubishi SpaceJet family for success.

“We have great respect for the achievements and capabilities in Quebec and are excited to be here.”

This move follows the company opening its US headquarters in Renton, Washington, earlier this year.

Jean-David Scott, vice president, SpaceJet Montreal Center, added: “This is an exciting moment for the company.

“I am proud to be a part of the team that is focused on the future of regional aviation and bringing opportunities to the region.”
