Premium AEROTEC on the upswing
The increasing series production of Airbus components is very positively affecting capacity utilisation at Premium AEROTEC.
Above all, increasing Airbus production rates for established aircraft programmes such as A320 and A330 and the ramp-up of A350 XWB and A400M military transporter production are ensuring more work at the Augsburg, Nordenham and Varel plants. At the same time, increasing activities of further aircraft programmes are positively affecting the capacity utilisation of the individual plants.
Against this backdrop, Premium AEROTEC has begun hiring more and more production specialists. At the same time, the expansion of Premium AEROTEC’s engineering division is moving forward, above all in the area of carbon fibre (CFC) technology in design and statics. Moreover, Premium AEROTEC expects to need around 50 additional experienced engineers in the CFC sector, particularly for design and stress analyses.
“The build-up of our production workforce is combined with an expansion of our development capabilities. This emphasises that it is not merely a short-term workload peak, but rather a continuing climb for Premium AEROTEC,” states Joachim Nägele, Executive Board of Management spokesman and Head of Programmes and Sales at Premium AEROTEC.
Operational since 1 January 2009, Premium AEROTEC has already become firmly established in its sector and is earning a top position: it is the number one supplier of aerostructures in Europe and ranks fifth worldwide.
Premium AEROTEC GmbH has more than 7,000 employees and generated revenues of about 1.3 billion euros in 2010. Its core business is the development and manufacturing of metal and carbon composite aerostructures and the associated equipment and production systems. The company has production plants in Augsburg, Bremen, Nordenham and Varel in Germany, and in Ghimbav, Braşov County, Romania.
