Our aeronautic industry is reaching for the stars
JadeBay has long been an important centre for the aeronautic industry. Airbus has been building parts for its planes here for decades. After a restructuring in 2008, the factories in Nordenham and Varel are now part of Premium Aerotec GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Airbus’ parent EADS.
For both Premium Aerotec works and their suppliers, many of whom are based in the region, there is enormous potential for growth. Premium Aerotec is investing heavily in research and development to expand on its core competencies of precision machining, aerostructures and body parts, wind tunnels and tool-making. The aeroplanes of the future will be made from titanium and carbon-fibre instead of steel and aluminium.
