Hexcel Receives Silver “Best Performer” Award at Airbus Ceremony

08 January 2013

Hexcel is delighted to have received the Silver award in the “Best Performer” category at the recent Airbus Supply Chain and Quality Improvement Programme (SQIP) Award Day held in Toulouse, France.

The award was presented to Jim Brown, Hexcel’s Director of Quality, and Patrice Buisson, Hexcel’s Airbus Programme Director, in recognition of the achievement at all Hexcel plants that supply Airbus in Europe and the USA.

According to Hexcel, the award follows a year of continuous improvement initiatives at Hexcel as production of carbon fibre prepregs has ramped up to meet the growing requirement for Airbus programmes, including the A350 XWB that will make its first flight in 2013. It says the award recognises its consistent high performance in terms of quality and delivery and builds on the achievement in 2011 when Hexcel won Silver in the “Best Improver” category.
