Premium Aerotec starts production of Airbus aircraft components in Romania Romanian Insider / January 19, 2011
Premium Aerotec has started the production of aircraft components at its new factory in Ghimbav, Bras¸ov County, Romania, eight months from the ground-breaking ceremony of the 60,000 sqm plant.
This first building section will provide qualified jobs for about 300 people. The new plant will specialise in the production and assembly of metal components for all Airbus series programs. It will be integrated in the process chain of Premium Aerotec’s German sites at Augsburg, Bremen, Nordenham and Varel.
Premium Aerotec is planning to extend the new production facility with a second construction phase this year and plans to employ a workforce of up to 500. The workload of the new plant in Ghimbav comes largely from orders that had previously been assigned to subcontractors in the euro zone.
Premium Aerotec GmbH has more than 6,000 employees and generated revenues of EUR 1.1 billion in 2009. Its core business is the development and manufacturing of metal and carbon composite aerostructures and the associated equipment and production systems. The company has production plants in Augsburg, Bremen, Nordenham and Varel in Germany, and in Ghimbav, Bras¸ov County, Romania. The plant manager in Romania is Jochen von Wurmb, while Dieter Meiners is the chief operating officer of Premium Aerotec and CEO of the local subsidiary Premium Aerotec S.R.L.
