GKN Aerospace Norway AS
GKN Aerospace Norway AS (GAN), previously known as Volvo Aero Norge AS, was established in 1987 to acquire the assets of the former jet engine division at Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk, which produced components to a range of engine programs for commercial and military aircraft. GAN is 100 % owned by GKN plc., which acquired Volvo Aero in 2012. The company represents a technological competence centre within advanced mechanical production, and offers reliable deliveries of complex parts trough flexible solutions.
GAN manufactures mechanical components and modules to the highest quality requirements to the world’s leading aircraft engine manufacturers, and for both military and commercial aircraft engines. It is certified to NATO AQAP 2310 Ed A, ISO 9001, AS 9100 Rev.C and ISO 14001.

GAN’s corporate strategy is to achieve a balanced accumulation of commercial and military aircraft engine programs, that will ensure long-term market access.

This target has been pursued through participation as a co-owner in commercial aircraft engine projects, for both standard and wide-bodied aircraft. Deliveries of components and modules to the commercial engine programs, amount to approximately 75 % of GAN’s turnover.
