Stemme AG, best known for its high-end motor gliders, the S10 and S12, has announced its merger with Remos AG, the German maker of the GX light sport aircraft. Remos has been making structural components for the Stemme motor gliders since 2014. Existing product will continue to be marketed under the current brand names, but Stemme AG will be the name of the combined business going forward. In addition to the line of consumer motor gliders, Stemme manufactures the ECARYS ES15 motor glider as a surveillance aircraft for government and military use.
Paul Masschelein, CEO of Stemme, said, “We look forward to rapidly bringing together the outstanding employees and cultures of both companies, as well as the complementary capabilities of our organizations, to position Stemme AG and Remos AG at the forefront of a new generation of solutions for the aviation industry.” The companies say they have no plans to combine manufacturing facilities, but expect to focus expansion on Remos’ Pasewalk site.
