Lt. Governor Boyd Rutherford will join Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) Secretary Mike Gill in leading a delegation of seven Maryland businesses to the 51st Paris Air Show, the world’s largest aerospace industry event. At the seven-day show, which is kicking off Monday, June 15, at Le Bourget Airport, Maryland will have a 60-square-meter booth where participating Maryland businesses can showcase their products and services. In addition to meetings with global aerospace companies, Lt. Governor Rutherford will attend a reception hosted by the U.S. Ambassador to France and Monaco Jane D. Hartley.

“The Paris Air Show presents a unique opportunity to reach the decision makers of many of the world’s largest aerospace companies and encourage them to explore Maryland as the ideal place to establish operations,” said Lt. Governor Rutherford. “With more than 2,200 exhibitors from 44 countries, the show will also help connect our participating Maryland businesses with new opportunities for global trade and investment.”

The Maryland companies exhibiting are: ASTec Metalworks in Middle River; Ausley Associates in Lexington Park; Celeste Industries Corp. in Easton; Cobham Advanced Electronic Solutions in Baltimore; IntelligentUAS in Riverdale; Mecaer Aviation Group (MAG) in Hagerstown; and SURVICE Engineering in Belcamp. The majority of the companies attending received an ExportMD grant from DBED to help offset the cost of the show.
