What we do
It’s not only what we do but how we do it that makes us special
Price, delivery and quality continue to be the most important requirements of aerospace material buyers. The development of new aircraft and the consistent competitive pressure to provide lowest cost and the highest quality in the shortest timescales, mean that these requirements have to be achieved in an increasingly complex environment. The introduction of new aircrafts continues to drive the need for a wider range of materials and specifications. The application of 'lean' manufacturing principles demands that these materials are supplied on a just-in-time basis and often in a processed form.
thyssenkrupp Aerospace is dedicated to meeting these needs. Whether our customers have an immediate one-off requirement for a single piece of metal, or need to negotiate a long-term agreement covering multiple materials and processes, we are ready to respond on a localised basis or as part of a global arrangement. We recognize that different customers have different manufacturing strategies and need different services to optimize or reduce production costs.
As a global enterprise we are part of the worldwide thyssenkrupp network. With more than 40 locations in around 20 countries, our global presence is a key advantage in cooperating with us. Our strong local presence allows us to cooperate closely with our customers and their subcontractors, while gaining an in-depth appreciation of their specific needs. Based on our global presence, we offer an unmatched logistics infrastructure to support customers and operations around the world. It helps us to provide truly responsive local services, ranging from raw material management to finished parts kitting. Our locations have been approved to EN/AS 9100 and/or EN/AS 9120 standards by the world’s leading aerospace certification companies. Our employees are well trained to meet our clients’ quality expectations, ensuring full lot traceability of every item we supply.
