thyssenkrupp enters into new long-term agreement with ITP
thyssenKrupp Aerospace and the Spanish global operator and foremost manufacturer of aircraft engines turbines, components and associated services for the aviation sector, ITP based in Zamudio, Spain, have agreed to extend and add to their existing strategic cooperation.
