Alcoa, Airbus Sign Supply Agreement for Aluminum Solutions

Alcoa, one of the world’s leading producers of primary and fabricated aluminum, has signed a multi-year agreement with Airbus to supply aluminum solutions. The deal was signed at the 2011 Paris Air Show and the contract value is approximately US$1.0 billion.

Under the terms of the agreement, Alcoa will deliver aluminum plates and sheets using its aluminum alloys. These products will be employed by Airbus in all its commercial aircraft programs and will range from single-aisle or short-range jets to twin-aisle or long-haul jets as well as structural parts, fuselage panels and new wing skins for Airbus.

Alcoa will supply the flat rolled aluminum products from its manufacturing facilities located in Belaya Kalitva, Russia; Kitts Green, UK; and Davenport, Iowa, U.S.

Recently, the company has introduced a number of aerospace solutions, which include advanced structural technologies and innovative proprietary alloys. When compared to composite materials, these solutions will decrease the cost, weight as well as maintenance of new airplanes.
