Welcome to Denel Aerostructures

Situated within the core of the Ekurhuleni Aerotropolis in the Gauteng Province, Denel Aerostructures' (DAe) world-class facility specialises in advanced manufacturing of complex aerostructures, making us a recognised leader in the  aerospace  industry.

As the first company in Africa to be Nadcap-accredited across multiple technology disciplines, DAe's reputation extends internationally to various aircraft OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).

Established in 1964, Denel Aerostructures has risen to prominence to the extent that it is now the largest aerostructures facility in Africa. Our capabilities include comprehensive design, industrialisation, advanced manufacturing and the assembly of ultra-light weight aerostructures for the global aerospace market.

DAe's team of dedicated and highly skilled employees has enabled DAe to be a current design partner to Airbus Defence and Space and also participate in commercial and military aircraft projects with OEMS such as Agusta Westland, BAE Systems, Boeing, SAAB and Gulfstream.
As proven on the A400M programme with Airbus Defence and Space, DAe continues to surpass customer expectations with regard to on-time delivery, innovation, cost and adherence to quality standards. 
 

As a powerhouse of advanced aerospace manufacturing, DAe continues to increase the participation of its incorporated tier 3 supplier base in the global aerospace industry.

With a full range of engineering capabilities - design, development, test and certification, DAe's value proposition includes pure engineering solutions not linked to a manufacturing programme.

Our mastery of technology and depth of skills are forged through decades of experience in the aerospace sector. With the Aerotropolis attracting aerospace and advanced manufacturing companies, DAe is well positioned and strategically close to a number of partners within the industry. 

As primary contributor to the growth of Africa's' aerospace industry and hightech manufacturing, DAe is ideally positioned to be a strategic aerospace design and manufacturing partner of choice to the global aerospace industry.
