Aviation on the upswing: voestalpine secures several major orders
Today, high-performance materials and sophisticated special forgings from voestalpine are indispensable in the aircraft models of the world’s largest manufacturers. Only recently, the High Performance Metals Division of the voestalpine Group secured not only a contract extension, but also several new and extensive orders for the supply of heavy-duty structural parts from American airplane manufacturer Boeing. In addition, prestigious Munich-based company MTU Aero Engines has commissioned voestalpine to supply highly critical forged parts over the coming years, for installation in a variety of aircraft models including the Airbus A320neo. The total volume of orders to 2030 amounts to around three hundred million euros.
