Umbra Cuscinetti Inc.
An aerospace center close to the customer
The company in Everett (WA), USA, was founded in 1979 under the name Northwest Gears. When it was purchased by UMBRAGROUP S.p.A. in 1999, its name was changed to UMBRA Cuscinetti Inc., thus creating a strong and immediate connection with the UMBRA image and brand. The headquarters boasts a production plant of over 5,000 m 2 and more than 1,000 m 2 in office space.
A new light
Joining the Group allowed Umbra Cuscinetti Inc. to enter the global aerospace market and engage in advanced research projects.
The strategic position near the Boeing factory in Everett enabled the company to develop a strong partnership with the Boeing brand and be constantly involved in the business activities of the aeronautics sector.
The new market areas are consistent with the current product portfolio, which includes strategic flight control components. Pursuing continuous improvement has been fundamental in optimizing processes and reducing inefficiencies.
