Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH (EFW), competence centre for Airbus aircraft conversions (P2F) and for light-weight components, has signed a supplier contract with Euro-Composites S.A (EC), amounting to more than US$80 million (£66 million).
This has secured EFW’s supply for honeycomb products from EC as a long-term partner and supplier. EFW uses this material in the production of its ligh-tweight aerospace products, for example floor panels, which are used in all Airbus aircraft, numbering more than 12,000. In addition, EFW also produces cargo lining and interior for the aerospace market as well as products for the transportation market at its production sites in Dresden and Kodersdorf, Germany.
Thanks to modern engineering and technologies, Euro-Composites can ensure the foundation for EFW’s top-quality and excellent delivery performance. Jointly coordinated safety stocks and the efficient use of high-tech material form the basis for a stable supply chain for major customers such as Airbus, Diehl and, of course, EFW’s freighter conversion operations.
