On May 9th 2019, FACC hosted its Supplier Conference at “Messezentrum Ried”.  More than 190 key suppliers took part in the event and the FACC Supplier Excellence Awards were presented for exemplary performance to our strategic partners. 

During the FACC Supplier Conference, CEO Robert Machtlinger presented the business strategy of the company and emphasized the importance of quality, operative excellence, social responsibility, as well as positive partnership in Supplier Management. Mr Machtlinger reiterated:  “The conference was an excellent forum to strengthen our supplier relationships and to communicate the most important strategic priorities ensuring a powerful partnership. A strong supply chain is key to our business activities as a recognized technology partner for the global aerospace industry. I am very happy that so many supplier partners joined this important conference. Further events will follow so we can shape the mobility of the future together.” The conference was an opportunity for all participants to understand the requirements of the market and the end customers, to mutually adjust objectives, and to adequately honor the performances of the best supplier partners. 

FACC presents awards in Bronze, Silver, and Gold 
To distinguish excellent supplier performance, the FACC Supplier Excellence Awards were presented in Gold, Silver, and Bronze categories along with the coveted “Special Performance Award” during the Conference. Executive Vice President - Procurement, Rudolf Leitner spoke proudly of the day, highlighting “It is always a pleasure for us to honor our suppliers for their excellent performances in the past year. Our suppliers continued commitment ensures that we can offer innovative solutions that meet the requirements of our customers.” Every year, FACC bestows these awards to those suppliers who offer special performances in the fields of product quality, reliability, cooperation, customer service, as well as efficiency enhancement and process-optimizing measures. 


Recognized as the best supplier, Isovolta AG won the “Supplier Excellence Award” in gold. The Austrian enterprise is an internationally leading manufacturer of composites and has been reliably supplying FACC with pre-pregs, especially for the Cabin Interiors Division, for more than 20 years. The cooperative partnership is determined by material and technology know-how, as well as efficiency throughout the order management process.
FlammAerotec GmbH produces sheet metal formed parts and machined parts of the highest precision according to premium standards. The company headquartered in Germany received the “Supplier Excellence Award” in silver. 
The “Supplier Excellence Award“ in bronze was presented to the Upper Austrian enterprise Kellner & Kunz AG as a competent C-parts Management Partner. Kellner & Kunz AG is a leading commercial enterprise and service provider in the field of tools, chemical-technical products, as well as fastening technology and work safety.  
Finally, our FACC “Special Performance Award” was awarded to a German representative this year. For the top performance accomplished in the previous year, FACC bestowed the “Special Performance Award” to Scholz Maschinenbau GmbH & Co.KG who manufactured and installed two autoclaves - one of them featuring a length of 19.9 meters and a diameter of 6.1 meters, making it the biggest ever applied by FACC.
