FACC receives Best Supplier Award from Embraer and extends partnership

Embraer has honoured FACC with the Best Supplier Award in the ‘Structures’ category. The strategic partnership with FACC will be further strengthened, as FACC has been accepted as a member of the Supplier Advisory Council of the world's third-largest aircraft manufacturer.

Furthermore, a contract for the development and production of components for Eve Air Mobility’s eVTOL platform reflects the extension of the cooperation between FACC and the Brazilian aircraft maker.

Embraer has businesses in commercial and executive aviation, defence and security, and agricultural aviation. During the annual Embraer Suppliers Conference in Brazil, FACC was awarded with the Best Supplier Award in the category Structures. The event took place on April 29th and 30th and especially highlighted enterprise efficiency as a key asset for the success of the aerospace industry.

“The award underlines FACC's outstanding performance over the past years. The fact that we were honoured as the best supplier in the structure category makes us very proud and thankful. As the leading supplier of Embraer in Austria, we are very much looking forward to further strengthening this partnership in the future,” stressed FACC CEO Robert Machtlinger.

“The Embraer Suppliers Award is the result of our culture foundation: safety first and quality always. Not only with the supply chain, but in everything we do involving our team, partners, clients and stakeholders. This is how we sustain our business,” stated Roberto Chaves – executive vice-president of global procurement and supply chain at Embraer.

Additionally, FACC has been accepted as a member of Embraer’s Supplier Advisory Council, a strategic committee in which the awarded suppliers participate with Embraer's senior leadership, to collaboratively discuss challenges, opportunities and strategies to unlock Embraer’s full potential.

FACC is a leading supplier to Embraer in Austria and has been supplying products and solutions to the aircraft builder for many years, including key wing components such as spoilers and ailerons.

Besides Aerostructures, FACC is Embraer’s Tier-1 supplier for Business Jet Interior Solutions. Due to strong rate increases, this collaboration will be further expanded and FACC’s production volume for Embraer will increase significantly.

In Austria, FACC is the largest supplier to Embraer, a partnership other Austrian companies are benefiting from as a result of subcontracts FACC has in place with Austrian suppliers such as F/LIST, Antemo, Isovolta and many others.

At the beginning of this year, FACC has received an order from Eve Air Mobility – a company founded by Embraer – for the manufacturing of essential components for the company’s eVTOL programme. This includes the development and production of the horizontal and vertical tail and its moveable systems (rudder and elevator) as well as the aileron.
