Last June, Titania’s Management Team agreed the execution of a specific project to establish the company in the United Kingdom, with the intention of doubling its sales in the international market. The decision is based on two important criteria: on the large potential market existing in the United Kingdom, since it is the second largest powerhouse in the aerospace sector after the United States, and on the strategic goal of becoming a benchmark laboratory in all countries where the European manufacturer Airbus has a presence. Furthermore, the UK enjoys the physical presence of the manufacturers Boeing and Bombardier, companies with which Titania already has specific agreements. The United Kingdom also has other top-level companies in the sector, such as Rolls Royce and BAE Systems.

The project to establish a presence, initiated last July, will be developed in two phases: the initial setting up of a sales office in Oxford, and subsequent investment in the creation of a laboratory with technological capabilities specific to this market. The implementation of this business plan will allow the company to double its current international turnover in three years, in addition to creating new business opportunities in the subcontracting chains of the previously mentioned OEMs.

The company has hired Natalia Becerra to lead this project. With more than 20 years of experience in the aeronautical sector in materials technologies and processes, Natalia also has solid knowledge of the world of testing because she was responsible for the harmonisation of processes in the laboratories of the former Exova group, in addition to being technical manager for its aerospace and composite materials division.

Natalia embodies the same values of excellence, change and respect that Titania pursues, in addition to having a strong commitment to guaranteeing the quality of customer-centred service. By joining the company, she shares and reinforces Titania’s potential as a technology SME with an international vision, where flexibility, agility and enthusiasm are competitive advantages in a globalised world.

By the end of this year, the company’s international turnover in technological services and tests will exceed 20%, with more than 50 international customers located all over the world. Titania works for other European countries such as Germany and France, although outside the continent it also has a significant customer base in the US, Mexico, Malaysia, Brazil, India or Morocco.
