FACC “Best Performer” for Airbus
FACC receives "Supplier Award" from the European aircraft manufacturer Airbus.
For the second time, we have received a “Supplier Award” from Airbus. The European aircraft manufacturer has nominated FACC as “Best Performer”, thus recognizing us as a reliable technology partner of the Airbus Group. The award has recently been presented by Airbus in Toulouse.
The Best Performer Award is another milestone in our longstanding and successful cooperation with Airbus. This prestigious distinction is a clear sign of trust. We are happy to attend the growth strategy of Airbus as a partner, both now and in the years to come.
Robert Machtlinger, CEO FACC
The award is part of the “Supplier Quality Improvement Plan (SQIP)” initiative which Airbus has developed together with its premium suppliers to ensure a sustainable top-quality production system throughout the group and supply chain, as well as across the process chain. The selection criteria are based on the fact that suppliers guarantee highest performance in terms of time and cost efficiency and proactively provide new and innovative customized solutions even beyond customer expectations, thus also supporting Airbus’ competitive edge.
FACC and Airbus are connected through a successful business relationship of more than 30 years. Since 2010, we have been actively involved in the SQIP program as a technology partner, setting new standards in terms of economic efficiency, sustainability, and comfort for the aircraft programs Airbus A220, A320neo, A330neo, A350, and A380 by supplying advanced lightweight construction systems - aerodynamically perfected components for the wings, noise-absorbing and weight-efficient engine components, and comfortable, functional, as well as aesthetic high-tech interiors for the new Airspace cabin.
We are very proud of our long-standing partnership with Airbus. The Best Performer Award is a great appreciation for the commitment of the FACC team”, said Andreas Furthmayr, Vice President Aerostructures of FACC, emphasizing the top performance of the crew. “Airbus can rely on our continued dedication. FACC’s reputation as a premium manufacturer of lightweight components and systems is based on our pronounced innovative ability and our excellent quality and performance standards throughout the global supply chain. I see great potential for the further extension of our powerful partnership with Airbus in the future.
