Defence group Saab extends contract with AirbusWednesday, 11 April 2012
Defence and security company Saab says it has received a contract extension with Airbus for the A320-family Aileron for the life of this programme.
Based on the current Airbus order backlog for the A320-family the initial contract is valued at Skr701million. Further Airbus sales will lead to additional orders and thereby increase the total contract value, Saab said in a press release
Saab has delivered ailerons for the wings of the Airbus A320-family since 2000. Saab has carried out extensive work aimed at reducing product costs through innovative new design and manufacturing processes for these composite ailerons. Saab has developed new state of the art CFRP (carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer) monolithic technologies and the concept have reduced the number of parts on the ailerons by over half.
“We are very pleased to have received this contract which further strengthens the partnership between Saab and Airbus. The renewed contract shows that we have been successful in our efforts of reducing production costs through innovative design and manufacturing processes in our previous deliveries,” says Kjell Johnsson, Senior Vice President and head of Saab’s Aerostructures operation within business area Aeronautics.
