This year too, four companies of the High Performance Metals Division presented their cumulative competence as reliable providers of highest-quality aerospace materials and components at the world’s largest air and space trade show.
All renowned representatives and suppliers of the aerospace industry attended the trade show at Paris’s Le Bourget Airport from June 17 to 20, 2019. This trade show, which takes place every two years, is considered both one of the industry’s most important exhibitions and a venue for many meetings with customers and suppliers and for closing contracts.
Successful trade show for voestalpine
voestalpine BÖHLER Aerospace—the aerospace industry’s leading provider that specializes in the production of hard-wearing drop forge parts made of titanium alloys, high-alloyed steels, and nickel-based alloys—was very successful at the trade show. It negotiated and closed two contract renewals: the company has been supplying titanium structural parts for the flap tracks used in the world’s most widely manufactured family of medium haul planes. Given the consistent and reliable quality as well as the performance of voestalpine BÖHLER Aerospace, the company’s client renewed the EUR 60 million contract. Another contract package regarding the supply of structural parts made of titanium and nickel-based alloys for civil and military helicopters and airplanes was renewed as well. This means that this voestalpine company was very successful at the trade show.
Industry’s key exhibition
Besides facilitating major contracts totaling USD 140 billion, the Paris Air Show 2019 also drew more than 300,000 visitors. Airbus announced a super long haul version of its A321 neo bestseller at the show. This aircraft, the so-called Airbus A321XLR, is supposed to fly up to 4,700 nautical miles (8,700 km) and thus is suitable for flights from Europe to the Americas or India, for example.
