Premium Aerotec Increase A400M Production

27 June 2011

Premium Aerotec have increased the production of assemblies for the A400M series aircraft, primarily comprising the development and manufacture of assemblies for the centre and rear fuselage sections including the cargo door out of carbon fibre reinforced plastic.

“In carrying out these tasks, especially the A400M series production, we are able to build on our workers’ decades of experience from the civil Airbus programmes and from the development and production of military aircraft such as Tornado and Eurofighter,” says Joachim Nägele, Premium Aerotec Head of Programmes and Sales. “Even if we’ve only been known on the world market as Premium Aerotec since early 2009, we embody the capabilities and knowledge that we acquired as former Airbus and EADS sites, with pioneering achievements in the area of large metal structures and in complex fibre composite materials in both aircraft sectors. And with corresponding technology centres for both material structures in the direct proximity of our Augsburg and Varel factories, we will continue to expand this knowledge and location advantage to the benefit of our customers,” states Nägele.

Dr. Dieter Meiners, Chief Operating Officer (COO) and member of Premium Aerotec's board, said “With currently more than 170 transport aircraft on order and good export potential, Airbus Military is an important customer for maintaining the workload of our sites. As a long-standing supplier of top-quality aircraft assemblies at competitive prices, we will not rest on our laurels, but will rather deepen our expertise in key technologies both for the A400M process chain and for further programmes in the sectors of metal and composite structures.”
