Daher-Socata secures global logistics contract at Airbus Helicopters in Germany

DAHER-SOCATA, the Aerospace & Defence division of DAHER, announces that it has secured a five-year contract for the global logistics for Airbus Helicopters' Donauwörth plant (Germany). These logistics services will be provided from the Airbus Helicopters Logistics Center, a 23,000 sqm warehouse, located within the plant perimeter.

Global Logistics Provider of Airbus Helicopters in Germany

From the Logistics Center, DAHER will provide logistics services on behalf of Airbus Helicopters for its production, maintenance and repair (spare parts) lines and for its retrofit operations (renovation / modernization of aircraft).

The contract covers all of the following types of operation:

· Management of incoming flows (including import customs)

· Quality control of products

· Warehousing (including an automated warehouse)

· Preparation of orders and supplies for parts and equipment

· On-site transport to supply production lines

· Management of outgoing flows (including export customs)

"Already an established partner for logistics in France and Spain and for the design and manufacturing of aerostructures (fully-equipped fuselages, box-beams, tail rotor), DAHER is delighted to strengthen its long-term partnership with Airbus Helicopters", stated Stéphane Mayer, President & CEO of DAHER-SOCATA. "The excellent working relationship between the teams at DAHER and Airbus Helicopters allows the Group to subscribe to the strategy of industrial excellence pursued by the world's leading helicopter manufacturer."

This puts DAHER in a position to be able to meet Airbus Helicopters need to shorten supply chain response times and to reduce costs through ongoing innovation, sharing best practices and continuous improvement planning.

Another success for DAHER's Integrated Industrial SupportTM solution

As an industrial group and services provider, DAHER has developed an innovative Integrated Industrial SupportTM solution. Based on a methodology and a set of tools to perform diagnostics, deploy and manage operational services (engineering, industrial, logistics and transport services), this solution allows industrial groups to secure and optimize their supply chain. This success further underscores the relevance of DAHER's industrial service approach founded on providing a tailor-made service to large industrial groups in its sectors of specialization.

Germany, a strategic area of development for DAHER

Already present in Bremen, Hanau, Leese and Leipzig for its project transport activities and in the Nuclear & Energy sector, DAHER is also a partner of Airbus in Hamburg, where it manages logistics and production line installation of insulation systems. With this new success, the Group proves itself to be an essential service provider for both, its existing customers in Germany and potential new customers.
