We are 30!
FACC celebrates its 30th anniversary with more than 200 guests and impressive show acts in front of the Lake Wolfgang panorama.
30 years FACC - 30 years success story! An anniversary to which we invited FACC partners, long-time companions and friends to the event resort Scalaria at Lake Wolfgang on June 20th. Over 200 guests accepted our invitation and celebrated our 30th birthday with us, accompanied by the unique panorama scenery and impressive show acts.
In 1981, the Austrian ski group Fischer Ski first researched on new applications of fibre composite technologies, in 1989 FACC was founded and in 2019 we can already look back on an extraordinary success story. In just 30 years, FACC has developed from a start-up into a globally leading technology group in the aerospace industry. With over 3,500 employees at 13 international locations, FACC designs, develops and manufactures innovative lightweight components and systems for aircraft. Today, all major players in the aviation industry are among FACC's customers. High growth and innovation leadership over the past three decades have driven last year's sales to a record level of EUR 780 million - all the more reason to celebrate these great achievements in style.
What began as a vision of a handful of pioneers has evolved into a leading global technology partner for the aerospace industry over the space of just three decades. This required innovative strength, passion, the right partners and a motivated crew. We would like to express our sincere thanks to each and every one of you. We can be proud of our achievements - our pioneering spirit and passion remain unchanged. But more importantly, we must keep our eyes on the future. We will embrace and rise to the challenges of the industry. We wish to shape the mobility of the future in a sustainable and efficient way with novel technologies and the materials of tomorrow. Our aim is to manufacture the best possible products that will make us and our customers even more successful.
Robert Machtlinger, CEO FACC
FACC invited partners, long-time companions and friends to its anniversary celebration under the motto "30 Years Beyond Horizons" at the Scalaria on Lake Wolfgang. Our CEO Robert Machtlinger as well as the two owner representatives Ronghuai Luo, AVIC President, and Ruguang Geng, Chairman of the FACC Supervisory Board, were delighted to welcome numerous prominent guests from Austria and abroad, including representatives of all important customers who had flown in directly from the Paris Airshow, as well as top representatives from business and politics.
Our guests were guided through the anniversary event by fascinating virtual worlds of experience in the Teatro of Scalaria, presented by ZiB anchorwoman Nadja Bernhard: The milestones of FACC's 30-year history and its 10-year partnership with AVIC were showcased in a specially created multimedia show. One of the numerous highlights was the impressive drone formation, which allowed onlookers to vividly experience our innovations in the night sky of Lake Wolfgang. Modern and deconstructed classic background music accompanied by a ballet performance of a state opera ensemble as well as a modern opera show turned the celebration into an unforgettable evening.
