Originating in Niedersachsen, the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) Volkswagen, Meyer Werft and Airbus are keeping the world moving in various areas of mobility. Airbus has set itself the goal of highly efficient and sustainable aircraft production. The Nordenham, Stade and Buxtehude sites in Niedersachsen are playing an important role in strengthening capacities for an increased production in the coming years and ensuring future-proof aircraft production as well as preparing for the production of zero-emission aircraft by 2035.
The Airbus plant in Nordenham is a modern production facility with extensive manufacturing capabilities in shell production (metal and CFRP), surface protection and assembly of fuselage sections. Up to 5,000 fuselage sections per year are manufactured there using modern riveting equipment. At the Stade plant, Airbus manufactures the CFRP vertical stabilizers for all the A320 family, A330, A350 and A400M aircraft. The upper wing surface for the A350 and the wing cover for the A400M are also produced there. The Airbus subsidiary CTC GmbH in Stade is a pioneer and trailblazer for production-ready lightweight construction with composites. In Buxtehude, Airbus subsidiary KID-Systeme manufactures electronic cabin communication equipment and passenger systems.
