Congratulations FACC! A great extension of the customer portfolio!

Bombardier Belfast has placed an order with FACC for the production of thrust reverser trans cowl components for the A320neo aircraft family. With this order, FACC has now extended its long-standing cooperation with Bombardier in the areas of Cabin Interiors and Aerostructures including engine nacelle components. 

“We were able to demonstrate to Bombardier Belfast our marked competence as a key partner. I am grateful for the trust Bombardier has placed in us and am delighted that it is now also relying on high-tech from FACC for its aircraft engine nacelles,” said Robert Machtlinger, CEO of FACC. 

FACC was able to demonstrate to Bombardier that it has outstanding expertise in component design for manufacture as well as ultra-modern production facilities. The project marks FACC's first collaboration with Bombardier Belfast. 


“This new order is of great strategic importance for FACC and for the Engines & Nacelles division in particular, as the cooperation with Bombardier Belfast is an expansion of our customer and product portfolio. Through its cooperation with Bombardier Belfast, FACC is further expanding its market share on the A320 aircraft family and benefits from the global success of the aircraft," explained Günter Nelböck, Vice President Engines & Nacelle of FACC. "Stable growth of the FACC Engines & Nacelles division and the creation of secure long-term jobs in the region are thus guaranteed.”
