Airbus Atlantic claims it ranks second in the world for chassis, first in pilot and third in business class and premium passenger seats (which will continue to be marketed under the Stelia Aerospace brand). The company has 13,000 employees in five countries (France, Spain, Morocco, Tunisia and Canada) and the turnover is expected to reach 3.5 billion euros.
Airbus unveiled its industrial reorganization project last April, with the goal of strengthening one of its core businesses in its industrial system: the assembly of skeletons. To do this, he decided to set up two companies in this field, one in Germany (around Stade, skeletal assembly sites in Hamburg and Premium Aerotech) and one in France.
Airbus Atlantic’s business will not only be geared towards the parent company, but can also cater to other aircraft manufacturers, such as ATR, Dassault Aviation or Bombardier, while continuing its armchair business with all global airlines. With this reorganization, it hopes to strengthen itself to provide an effective response to changes in the aviation sector: increased competition, increased production rates, modernization of the industrial system, and readiness for carbon-neutral aviation.
