Premium AEROTEC GmbH generated revenues of about 1.5 billion euros in 2012. 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, Braşov County, Romania.
Augsburg looks back on a long history of aircraft construction. The foundation was laid in 1916 by Bayerische Rumpler-Werken. In the decades until the end of the Second World War, the name Willy Messerschmitt was synonymous with aviation in Augsburg. From 1945 up until today, companies like MBB, DASA and EADS have dominated aircraft construction. The commencement of development and production is associated with such programmes as the Fouga Magister, the Fiat G.91, the F-104 Starfighter, the C-160 Transall and the F-4 Phantom. Today, the 2,500 employees on the production side manufacture components for the Airbus and Eurofighter, with civil uses accounting for 80 percent of all production.
In all, the Augsburg site comprises 3,000 employees working in four plant sections. Main Plant IV also houses the Premium AEROTEC headquarters and Engineering with 300 employees, as well as the vocational training section. Eurofighter centre fuselage sections and UAV prototypes are assembled in Plant III.
Plant I is currently being built right next door, and will house the manufacture of the side shells of section 16/ 18 of the Airbus A350 XWB. Access to the airfield is being created via Lagerlechfeld so that A380 components can be transported with the Beluga. This is where the A380 bathtub and the A400M shells are currently being fabricated in Plant II. These investments and the networking with the Augsburg Technology Campus are creating the prerequisites for mastering technological change and the challenges of international competition.
