China wins more A350 production work

written by australianaviation.com.au | September 20, 2010

Airbus has announced that China’s CAC Commercial Aircraft Company (CCAC) will be the sole manufacturer of spoilers and droop panels for the A350 XWB.

“With this work package, we have accomplished our commitment to manufacture five per cent of the A350 XWB airframe in China,” said Klaus Richter, Airbus’s executive vice president, procurement. “Besides, this is also an important step forward for Airbus to develop a truly global industrial and engineering footprint, which helps Airbus to create a competitive cost base and access talented global resources.”

While CCAC will produce the parts, their development will be conducted by Austrian based company FACC AG under a separate contract.
