Service contract with aircraft manufacturer (France)

Service contract with aircraft manufacturer (France)

Aalberts Industries signed a long term service contract with a French manufacturer of military aircraft and business jets.

Over the last 40 years, this customer has appreciated our surface treatments of aluminum wing and structure pieces to combat corrosion.

The high-value agreement is very special, emphasising the importance of Aalberts Surface Treatment taking the lead in an innovation to produce in a more sustainable way. A significant investment will renew our production line in such a way that we are able to meet 'REACH' European regulation. In line with this new standard, chromium 6 – harmful for people and planet – will be suppressed in our treatments and replaced by sulphuric acid. This innovation was one of the most important reasons to collaborate with us.

Other major reasons to choose our service were the proximity of our locations in France, our 13-metre long bath to 'dip' the aircraft wings and the great flexibility we offer. A combination that makes us very competitive. We are one of the few suppliers able to deliver within five days. The deal is something to be proud of, it highlights the strength of our technology company and shows how successful teamwork leads to great results
