Premium AEROTEC is at home in the air. The company is one of the world’s leaders in the development and manufacturing of structures and production systems for commercial and military aircraft construction. At its facilities in Augsburg, Bremen, Nordenham, Varel and Braşov (Romania), Europe’s leading aircraft supplier manufactures state-of-the-art aircraft structures for the entire Airbus Family using aluminium, titanium and carbon fibre composites (CFC). Premium AEROTEC is also making a key contribution to the development and manufacturing of the A350 XWB. Furthermore, the company supplies key components for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Eurofighter and the A400M.
Even aviation pioneers need a dependable base. Premium AEROTEC was founded as an independent company in 2009 by joining forces of EADS’ Augsburg site and the Airbus sites Nordenham and Varel with decades of experience as a solid basis. Through its innovative drive, the company is cementing its position at the global forefront of this high-technology industrial segment.
To effectively shape the future requires unique ideas that generate maximum technical progress with optimum ecological and economic efficiency. In order to achieve this, Premium AEROTEC works closely with universities, the German Aerospace Centre DLR, the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and other leading institutions in developing and optimising lightweight aerostructures capable of supporting maximum loads. For example, the patented VAP® (Vacuum Assisted Process) technology was developed in Augsburg. This procedure enables manufacturing of large CFC components, such as the 4.5 meter diameter pressure bulkheads for the A350 XWB or the Boeing 787, in a single step. This, in turn, enables maximum weight optimisation of the pressure bulkhead.
Smart technology demands agile minds. Premium AEROTEC has successfully positioned itself not only as an aviation supplier, but also as a desirable employer. Over 8,000 employees and 300 vocational trainees ensure the company’s success. The CRF Institute named Premium AEROTEC a “top employer for engineers”, citing its exemplary Human Resources management of its technological experts and intensive nurturing of high-potential careers.
Born from a vision and evolving into a pacesetter for the aircraft construction of tomorrow, Premium AEROTEC is striving to become the leading global supplier for commercial and military aviation. With annual revenues of € 1.3 billion in 2011 and positive growth forecasts, the company has already emerged as one of the global front-runners in this industry. An extremely promising dynamic, and one that is bringing our goal of international leadership in development and production using innovative materials and technologies within reach.
