FACC (Ried im Innkreis, Austria), which specializes in the design, development and production of advanced aircraft components and systems, has joined SPACE Deutschland e.V. (Berlin, Germany) as a full member.

SPACE is an aerospace association devoted to strengthening the industrial performance of the German aerospace industry and its supply chain. Members include Airbus (Toulouse, France), Dassault (Paris, France), the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI, Berlin, Germany) to important suppliers such as Rockwell (Milwaukee, WI, US), Safran (Paris, France),  and Thales (La Défense, France).

"The performance of our suppliers in the SME sector is a critical success factor for FACC AG," says Andreas Ockel, COO of FACC. "SPACE offers us the opportunity to boost the competitiveness of the supply chain through targeted improvement projects in a joint, coordinated approach on the part of the major European aerospace companies. We are delighted to contribute to this industry-wide initiative and help improve production processes across the entire value chain.”

FACC will collaborate with SPACE in order to prepare the downstream supply chain of the aerospace industry for the more stringent requirements in terms of delivery performance and quality.

Rudolf Leitner, Executive Vice President of FACC, adds, “The supply industry is undergoing structural change due to growth. Small and medium-sized enterprises are not fully prepared for this structural change and the associated challenges of production ramp-ups. By becoming part of the industry association SPACE, we are able to contribute our comprehensive expertise to support the SMEs in the supply chain and preserve their know-how in the downstream value creation stages.”
