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.
