During the annual Embraer (São Paulo, Brazil) Suppliers Conference in April 2024, FACC AG (Ried im Innkreis, Austria) was awarded Best Supplier Award in the category “Structures.” This is how Embraer sustains its business, Roberto Chaves, executive vice president of global procurement and supply chain at Embraer, says — through a foundation of “safety first and quality always.” 

“The award underlines FACC’s performance over the past years,” FACC CEO Robert Machtlinger adds. “We are looking forward to further strengthening this partnership in the future.”

FACC has been supplying products and solutions to Embraer for many years, including key wing components such as spoilers and ailerons. Besides aerostructures, FACC is Embraer’s Tier 1 supplier for business jet interior solutions. Spoilers, wingtips, ailerons and flap track fairings are composite, FACC tells CW, which are manufactured in the company’s cleanroom, cured in an autoclave, CNC machined and NDI tested.

Due to strong rate increases, FACC’s production volume for these kinds of solutions are expected to increase significantly. Already, FACC is Embraer’s largest supplier in Austria. At the beginning of 2024, FACC also received an order from Eve Air Mobility — a company founded by Embraer — for the manufacture of essential components for the company’s electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) aircraft. This includes the development and production of the horizontal and the vertical tail and its moveables (rudder and elevator) as well as the aileron. 

 

In addition to its award, FACC has been accepted as a member of Embraer’s Supplier Advisory Council, a strategic committee in which the awarded suppliers participate with Embraer’s senior leadership to collaboratively discuss challenges, opportunities and strategies to unlock Embraer’s full potential.
