Gurit has agreed the continuation of supplies of prepreg materials for all Airbus aircraft types for the years 2012 and 2013 with an existing customer.

According to Gurit, the agreement, outside the existing frame-work contract with the EADS group, represents a business volume of up to CHF 20 million for this period. Gurit say they will supply materials to a leading cabin supplier for all Airbus planes, including the world’s largest passenger airplane, Airbus A380, and the new wide-body model Airbus A350, which is scheduled to enter into service in 2015. Gurit will supply pre-impregnated composite materials manufactured in its factories in Kassel, Germany, and Zullwil, Switzerland.

Under the renewed contract, Gurit explain that their materials will be used in the production of cabin ceilings, side-walls and of airducts, to name the key applications.
