Turnkey Assembly Solutions

Ascent designs turnkey integrated assembly lines for a proven increase in manufacturing productivity, reliability and quality. So you can build the best products in the industry, with unmatched efficiency and quality.

With offices in North America and Europe, our Ascent Integration team develops engineered solutions for challenging aerostructure assembly requirements. Our solutions are used to assemble metallic and composite components and structures, from wing components to fuselage structures to final assembly lines.

Our complete project integration services encompass:
  • Design engineering
  • Factory simulation and process development
  • Manufacturing
  • Installation and commissioning
  • Training
  • Production and qualification support

Professional program management centers our focus on meeting our customer’s program milestones.


Master designs are developed with the full interaction of our clients. During this formative stage, we focus on a number of considerations such as concurrent engineering and design-to-cost factors. Emerging from these designs are innovative solutions intended to improve both ergonomics and efficiency of assembly lines.

To ensure maximum precision, our experts monitor all new technologies and confirm their suitability for each project. We build on our engineering solutions with superior supply chain management, covering both local and low-cost contents. Moreover, we provide specification to suppliers and measure capacity to integrate with outsourced components.
