Airbus combines aerostructure assembly under Atlantic banner
Thursday, 6 January 2022
Airbus Atlantic will be an essential element in the aerostructures supply chain, with more than 500 direct suppliers (flying products) and more than 2,000 indirect suppliers. STELIA and Airbus sites are involved.

A wholly-owned Airbus subsidiary, Airbus Atlantic, was officially established on 1st January 2022. The new company groups the strengths, resources and skills of Airbus's sites in Nantes and Montoir-de-Bretagne, the central functions associated with their activities, as well as the STELIA Aerospace sites worldwide.

This unification is part of the transformation project announced in April 2021, aimed at strengthening the value chain of aerostructure assembly within Airbus's industrial setup, this activity being considered as core business. It marks the intention to gain competitiveness, innovation and quality for the benefit of Airbus's current and future programmes.

Airbus Atlantic will, the company says, be an essential element in the group's value chain and will play a key role with regard to the aerostructure supply chain, with more than 500 direct suppliers (flying products) and more than 2,000 indirect suppliers (general procurement products).

"At the heart of Airbus, Airbus Atlantic aims at meeting the great challenges linked to a sustainable aviation industry, pioneering new technologies,” says Cédric Gautier, CEO of Airbus Atlantic. “Our first mission will be to ensure the satisfaction of all our customers and to establish new standards of excellence in terms of quality and operational efficiency. I have full confidence in the talent, enthusiasm and commitment of the Airbus Atlantic teams to write this new chapter of our history with success.”

With 13,000 staff in five countries and three continents, and an estimated business volume of around 3.5 billion euros, Airbus Atlantic is the world number two for aerostructures, world number one for pilot seats and ranks in the top three for Business Class and First Class passenger seats, which continue to be marketed under the STELIA Aerospace brand.
