At the Airbus Material & Parts Supplier Day held in January 2020 in Toulouse, France, Amag received the Accredited Supplier award from Airbus. It is the highest of four quality awards for Airbus suppliers.
Amag Austria Metall AG thereby ranks as the only aluminium rolled product supplierto receive this top award. The prize is awarded for outstanding delivery reliability and excellent product quality and forms part of Airbus’ Supply Chain & Quality Improvement Programme (SQIP). Airbus operates this programme together with selected premium suppliers to ensure continuous improvement throughout the supply chain.
„By awarding Amag with the 2019 accredited suppliers award, Airbus recognized the high level of service and quality of the products supplied from Ranshofen. We appreciate the long-term cooperation, which already resulted in various other awards, such as the Best Performer Award 2018,” said Kati Schirmacher, Airbus Supply Chain Quality & Operations Manager.
Gerald Mayer, CEO of Amag, said: “We see this success as an incentive to continue working on our performance, and consequently on developing our business relationship. Our joint projects for the next few years have already been set up.”
Amag and Airbus have been linked in a successful partnership since 2005. The largest multi-year supply contract ever concluded between Amag and Airbus was signed in July 2016. This contract relates to certified rolled products, which are deployed for the structure and outer body of all Airbus aircraft families, as well as Amag’s closer integration into the Airbus supply chain through joint recycling projects and initiatives aimed at boosting material efficiency.
