voestalpine is a leading supplier to the aircraft industry of forged parts and exceptionally durable components in special steel grades, titanium alloys, and aluminum. Aircraft components must withstand enormous fluctuations in load stresses. Extreme pressure differences, low temperatures, enormous starting and landing forces—these components must bear the brunt of taking off and landing over many years. We use state-of-the-art processes to manufacture these components in high-load-bearing metal alloys, to ensure their operational reliability. We forge and strengthen these valuable materials using extremely heavy tools. The aerospace sector generated around 3% of the Group’s revenue in the business year 2019/20.
