UTVA Avio Industrija will be responsible for the production, installation and quality control of the marry-up jig, the final station of the assembly line where all the major sections of an aircraft fuselage are aligned and put together.

Piaggio Aerospace will have two marry-up jigs available, with the addition of the jig produced by UTVA. One will be fully dedicated to military aircrafts and the other to business aviation planes. This expansion is a positive result the company’s growing commient to defense and security.
