Strong technology Partner
Over the years, FACC has become a strong technology partner to Bombardier as regards the development and manufacture of components and system solutions. There are several fields of cooperation: FACC manufactures wing-to-body fairings, rudders, and fan cowls, up to complete interiors including galleys and crew recreation rooms.
Weight-optimized composite products
FACC has also delivered a number of light, weight-optimized composite products for the Bombardier Global 7500 and Challenger 350 programs. Now, for its work in 2019, the company has been honored with the coveted Bombardier Diamond Supplier certification, for its wing-to-body fairings. “The strong long-term business relationship with Bombardier has been marked by numerous common successes in development and project work“, reports Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC AG. One example is the key components now awarded with the prize: in the initial phase, FACC was responsible for the fabrication of first article parts and the performance of certification tests, now the wing-to-body fairings are manufactured in series and delivered by FACC.
Getting the Diamond Supplier certification from Bombardier is a great joy and honor to us, and an encouragement to continue on our path of being a best-in-class business partner to our customers. This is one of our key objectives and an important part of our strategy for success.
