NORDAM selected by Airbus to supply A320 cabin windows

NORDAM has been selected by Airbus to provide cabin windows for its A320 family production lines and aftermarket support. The contract will begin January 1, 2012.

"Airbus and NORDAM share a long supply relationship and our recent selection is a reflection of our commitment to service and quality," said T. Hastings Siegfried, chief operating officer of NORDAM Transparency Group and vice chairman of The NORDAM Group, Inc.

NORDAM's plans to support the increased production are already underway. Its Tulsa, Oklahoma based manufacturing plant will increase cabin window production to over 60,000 panes at peak production periods and operational upgrades have been made to improve the efficiency and quality of its acrylic casting facility in preparation for Airbus's increasing deliveries. NORDAM casts its own acrylic and produces NORDEX® 188 stretched acrylic for use in cabin windows, glazings, and flight deck products.

NORDAM has supplied transparency products to Airbus for more than 10 years. Additional product lines include wing tip glazing assemblies for the A320 Family, A330, A340, and the A380; landing light glazing assemblies for the A380; and cabin windows for the A380 aircraft.

"We are happy to say, we are the cabin window provider for the world's largest aircraft, the A380, and now the world's fastest growing aircraft family, the A320," noted Siegfried.
