Airbus China JV sole supplier of A350 XWB elevators

  • 20-Jan-2010 09:18 EST

Harbin Hafei Airbus Composite Manufacturing Centre, a joint venture between Airbus and a group of Chinese partners, signed a contract for the work package of A350 XWB elevators with Spain-based Aernnova Aerospace SAU (ANN), which is a major supplier of aerostructures to Airbus. Under the contract, the Manufacturing Centre will become the sole supplier of A350 XWB elevators to ANN. The Manufacturing Centre is responsible for both manufacturing and assembling the complete set of elevators, which are mostly made of composites and which are part of the A350's horizontal tailplane. Production in China is expected to start in 2012 after an initial industrialization phase in Europe.
