Stability and growth

We combine the innovative dynamics of a medium-sized company with absolute customer orientation with regard to term consistency and quality. The close integration into the long-term programs of the aviation industry is the basis of our continuous development in conjunction with our committed, highly trained employees.


Processes and resources

COTESA is continuously investing in plant engineering, such as autoclaves, 5-axis-CNC machines and test equipment, in order to realize the more and more demanding components of our customers. On the basis of our SAP ERP system, we plan all steps from purchasing to delivery of the components.


R&D activities

As a company with a great deal of knowledge in the process design and production of complex components, we are continually working on deepening our know-how. In addition to the close cooperation with the Saxon universities, we therefore work in numerous research projects to increase our technological lead.



For COTESA, compliance with the highest quality standards is self-evident.

This is reflected in our certification according to EN 9100: 2010, NADCAP Composite, NADCAP NDT as well as in the accreditation as testing laboratory according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. In addition, COTESA has been qualified according to numerous AIPS and AITM standards.
