The voestalpine wing, the architectural highlight of the Red Bull Ring right next to the start/finishing straights, impressively embodies innovation and technology, and not just in the automotive, but also in the aerospace segment with the Red Bull Air Race. This is where the circle closes for the voestalpine Group, who with its subsidiaries Böhler Schmiedetechnik, Böhler Edelstahl, Böhler Bleche, and Böhler Profil has long been established in the aerospace industry as a leading provider of high-alloyed special steels and titanium and nickel based alloys, and who for years has been a reliable partner for international aircraft manufucturers and their suppliers.
“Böhler materials can be found in all Airbus and Boeing aircraft models. We are proud of the fact that three of our four production companies, Böhler Edelstahl, Böhler Schmiedetechnik, and Böhler Bleche are located in Styria where this weekend the spectacular aerospace presentation Red Bull Air Race will take place. The aerospace industry will thus become an increasingly important economic factor also for Styria,” states Franz Rotter, Member of the Management Board of voestalpine AG and Head of the Special Steel Division.
At the Red Bull Air Race that will take place over the weekend in Spielberg, twelve race pilots will take up the challenge to fly their racing planes at top speeds of up to 370 km/h through a designated course. Only master class pilots can land on the finishing straight next to the voestalpine wing.
