For more than 25 years, Terma has supplied the most demanding commercial and military clients with high-performance metal and composite structures for use on the fifth generation fighter F-35 Ligtning II, and some of the world’s best performing aircraft.
Terma is a world leading aerospace manufacturer with more than 25 years of experience in design and manufacture of advanced, high-performance aerospace composite structures. With our highly trained and experienced engineering staff and cutting-edge composite facilities, we manufacture parts for fifth generation fighters, commercial airliners, business jets, rotorcraft, and missiles. Beyond Built-to-Print (BTP) manufacturing, we create value for our customers by offering a full range of design and engineering services and have established ourselves as a low-risk, high-quality provider of composite structures at commercial terms and pricing.
In a world where the need for affordability, and reduced weight dominates, the development of strong but light-weight materials has become increasingly important. Composite structures are an example of a modern technology that allows commercial aircraft to reduce weight and improve range, while at the same time saving fuel. Stronger and lighter composite structures for fighter aircraft allow for a small radar cross section while at the same time increasing the payload.
Terma’s one-stop approach to composite aerostructures design and manufacturing enables us to provide highly optimized composite products, such as:
- Leading edges
- Control surfaces
- Fuselage panels
- In-flight opening doors
- Empennage components
- Mission specific equipment for military aircraft
- Missile components
- Mission specific pods

Design and engineering
Terma offers design and build based on a long tradition for solutions to military aircraft and commercial platforms – both for fixed wing aircraft and rotorcraft. We create value for our customers by offering a full range of design and engineering services and have established ourselves as a low-risk, high-quality provider of composite structures at commercial terms and pricing.
Terma is a one-stop shop for advanced composite manufacturing including high precision composite trimming, composite machining facility, manufacturing of complex metal solutions, surface treatment, and assembly. Our facility is continuously being modernized to stay industry leading and support customer requirements. In 2016, we inaugurated a new 3.400 m2 state-of-the-art composite facility housing our new cleanroom for layup of composite parts, materials rack, autoclaves, and tool storage building, aggregating our world leading composite facility to more than 30.000 m2. As a major strategic supplier to the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program, we supply more than 70 unique parts, and advanced composite structures for the F-35 Lightning II.
At Terma, we live by continuous improvements. In all areas of our company, we strive for improved processes and efficiency. The target is zero defects on quality, on time delivery, and pricing in line with customer expectations. Our high commitment to quality and on time delivery has won us a.o. numerous Raytheon 3-Star Excellence Awards and the Northrop Gruman Platinum Source Award.
Work at Terma's composite Center in Denmark
World-class Composite Center
Terma is proud to have a fully integrated world-class Composite Center located in Denmark.This is our center as we do business around the world. Rooted in a small country with global outreach and a highly skilled workforce, we are known for developing high quality composite parts to the exacting standards required by the aerospace industry.
Work at Terma's Composite Center in Denmark
Terma’s Composite Center is built around a fully integrated composite manufacturing facility, where 3D composite data, such as Fibresim, is nested and transferred digitally to the cutting machine, allowing individually labeled and controlled ply kits to be made. The 3D data is also used to perform draping analysis on the parts, and ply projection files are sent to the Virtek laser projectors, which are used by Terma to ensure the composite parts are consistently manufactured to high accuracy, while maintaining a cost-effective approach.
Our world-class Composite Center and our highly skilled workforce keep us at the forefront of composite manufacturing. Terma heads up an aggressive continuous development strategy to set new standards for composite manufacturing technology.
Terma is a proud supplier to:
- Lockheed Martin
- Northrop Grumman
- BAE Systems
- General Dynamics
